Dialogue through Sports Home
Our Action 'Dialogue through Sports: Play for Peace' was accepted as part of this year's celebration. We will have a bi-communal basketball tournament on Dialogue night with 4 teams of youth (2 girl's teams and 2 boy's teams) basketball players. We will also facilitate a training of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) with a bi-communal youth group and one Structured Dialogic Design Process co-laboratory (workshop) to envision a future Cyprus with a bi-communal youth group. The youth will create a visual representation of the envisioned future Cyprus through a painting/drawing activity. The final paintings will be displayed in the Buffer Zone that divides north and south Cyprus. On May 22, some of the youth, members of the PeacePlayers International team and project facilitators will appear on the bi-communal television show “Biz/Emeis” and the bi-communal radio show “Talk of the Island” to discuss the action.
‘1001 Actions’ is a major campaign initiated by the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation and its network of over one thousand civil society organizations, for the mobilization of people and actions dedicated to the promotion of mutual knowledge and respect in the region.
The campaign runs throughout 2008, which has been designated the Euro-Mediterranean Year of Intercultural Dialogue, and aims to promote the role of intercultural dialogue to:
- fight racism and xenophobia as well as any form of discrimination,
- challenge extremism from all sources and origins,
- rediscover common roots and heritage, and develop the idea that we all share a common destiny.
We believe that we can promote our values and key messages best through our action.
Throughout the twelve months actions for dialogue will take place across the Euro-Mediterranean region, from Morocco and Portugal to Lebanon and Turkey, from Latvia and Poland to Greece and Egypt. Actions will be diverse in terms of size and thematic but will all focus on promoting knowledge of the other.
The key event of the campaign will be the Euro-Mediterranean Dialogue Night on 22 May 2008. The event, which will be held in synchronisation in thirty-seven countries, will be an opportunity for people of the Euro-Med region to unite in one common voice for dialogue.
