„YMCA Europe is a working fellowship to strengthen movements where people grow in body, mind and spirit.“


Peace Work Institute Reunion will bring together both generations of Peace Work Institute alumni and serve for them as a platform to share, learn and reflect on what Roots for Reconciliation Project has been for the them.

Category: YMCA Europe events
Date: 8th April 2019 - 14th April 2019
Place: Toledo, Spain

The Reunion is a concluding activity within the Peace Work Institute scheme, where the best practises are shared, results evaluated and future plans conceptualised. It is also planned that this event will serve as focus group forum, bridging with the Reflecting on Peace Practices process of the Roots for Reconciliation initiative. 

Through the above-described training and practice process the PWI Handbook will be further tested and tailored. This work will be outsourced to a competent expert, with the final version of the Handbook as an output published and available for knowledge sharing in conflict transformation work with large.

With over 2000 years of history, the city of Toledo has the special designation of being a melting pot, a place where the various cultures and eras of Spain have converged and congregated, and which together comprise a rich model of the country’s history. 

Today Toledo is one of Spain’s most popular cities from a tourist standpoint.  It was named the capital of the Autonomous Community of Castile-La Mancha in 1982, and in 1987 it was named a World Heritage Site by the United Nations, due largely to its concentration and wide variety of historical monuments, most of which are religious in nature and demonstrate the city’s diversity over the centuries.
