A training course and exchange of methods on how to promote constructive dialogue between migrant and local communities, and help the process of inclusion, may it be temporary or long-term.

What are the goals?

  • Build trust and tolerance between migrants and locals

  • Help to accept that the migrants are in fact here
  • Change destructive and hurtful communication patterns into constructive dialogue
  • Find the values in the foreign cultures the came to our „doorstep”
  • Find useful and inspiring roles migrants can undertake in the local communities through which social inclusion can happen naturally

Methods of Beyond Fear:

  • Outdoor experiential education, a form of non-formal education in the outdoors that helps participants to open up, to experiment freely and to guide their own personal/group learning with the experiences gained.
  • Art (movement art, visual expression, storytelling, etc.) as good tool for expression helps participants to express themselves in a creative and effective way, to stay focused and inspired for the whole 10 days. Art creates a very friendly and open atmosphere where participants can share the challenges they might face on a level that feels comfortable.
  • Solution focused coaching tools that help participants stay focused on their own learning goals.
  • Coaching happens in big/small groups with certain topics (good practices sharing, new and innovative approaches, networking) and to facilitate the best output in a light, creative and playful way.
  • Learning by doing: participants get a chance to try the new techniques learned with a group composed of young migrants and youngsters playing a leading role within their peer group, who will come to the training for a short „mini-camp”, and their program will be facilitated by the participants themselves.
