Youth for Coexistence

In November 2020, Attalaki received a grant within the program “Capacity Building Program” funded by The Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD) and being implemented by Association de Cooperation en Tunis (ACT).

This project works on the span of 2 years to spread the culture of difference among young people with the need to respect the beliefs and tendencies of others and how to manage diversity in the public space, develop skills and capabilities in creative thinking and create initiatives that contribute to creating an atmosphere of trust between the various components of society.

This project, titled Youth for Coexistence is a training program that aimed to train 15 youth activists from both genders to become trainers (ToT) in a 4 days intensive training course on the following themes:

  • Dialogue management and methods of teamwork and effective communication
