Berghof Foundation’s Grant for Conflict Transformation: Youth as Change-makers

Berghof Foundation has announced the 2013 Call for Proposals for ‘Grant for Innovation in Conflict Transformation: Youth as Change-makers – from conflict actors to peacebuilders’

The grant focuses on the roles and nonviolent strategies by which young people contribute to constructive conflict transformation.

The call encourages the submission of project proposals based on research, education, arts and practice that are complementary to activities carried out by the Berghof Foundation. The projects the Foundation seeks to fund should empower young people to act as agents of conflict transformation and to become actively engaged as change-makers and motivated peacebuilders.

Proposals should offer creative ideas and innovative approaches on:
  • Fostering nonviolent strategies and approaches of youth to resist against repression, injustice or foreign occupation
  • Developing applicable youth-specific approaches to post-war reconciliation, conflict transformation and peacebuilding
  • Dealing constructively with youth-related violence and its root causes
  • Strengthening youth organisations as bridge-builders (across borders, ethnic barriers, cultures or social classes)
  • Empowering youth as agents for a culture of peace
Initial Applications for this call can be submitted through the Foundation’s online grant application form from 1 May 2013 until 31 May 2013.
