Jumpstart Youth Campaign Training on Public Relations and Campaigning

Youth Center Union and Future Worlds Center are jointly organizing a training on Campaigning and Public Relations (PR) as part of the E.U. funded project ‘”Jumpstart - Youth Peace Campaign in Cyprus” for the weekend 5-7 March, at L.A Resort hotel in Lapta/Lapithos.

The training will include sessions on Campaigning and Ethics, Public Relations and formation and work with specific action teams.

Eligible applicants to the training are young people island-wide, aged 18-30 who would like to get actively involved in peace-building activities relating to the areas of Human Rights (Youth/Gender issues), Environment (ecology, urban planning) and Entertainment (music, dance performances, workshops). These small-scale projects will be implemented during a Peace Bus tour around the island, expected to take place over several weekends from May - July 2010.

The Campaigning and PR training will engage 15 people from each community. Participation criteria will include willingness and availability to contribute to further activities as well as previous experience in youth projects.

The actions within the Jumpstart - Youth Peace Campaign in Cyprus aim to increase confidence-building and co-operation between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot Youth (18-30).

“Jumpstart - Youth Peace Campaign in Cyprus” project is implemented by Youth Center Union (Genclik Merkezi Birligi), a Turkish Cypriot organization, which is the main applicant, and Future Worlds Center (legally reg. Cyprus Neuroscience and Technology Institute) which is the partner organization for the Greek Cypriot Community. The project is funded with support from the European Union.
