Applications are now open for Fully Funded Rondine Cittadella della Pace World House Program 2020. Moreover, the Rondine Cittadella della Pace Association, based in Italy, has been working for peace and dialogue for 20 years. The program aims at promoting conflict transformation through the experience of young people coming from conflict and post-conflict areas and belonging to different cultures by applying an original training approach. During a two-year experience, participants deconstruct the idea of the “enemy” and work actively to develop projects with a social, political and economic impact in order to contribute to peaceful development in their own countries and the world.
To achieve these results, fellows receive high-quality training on topics related to conflict management, as well as improve their soft skills and learn about the necessary methodologies needed to create concrete opportunities for development and reconciliation. In addition to this specific training program, fellows develop their professional and academic curriculum by obtaining a master’s degree or specialization by high vocational education.
What is the World House?
The World House is an international experience of civic engagement for conflict transformation. It takes place through the experience of cohabitation with other fellows and daily activities. Moreover, this is a core part of the project where the education process and training take place – learning by living. By being the core of the Citadel, the World House involves many innovative courses and projects. Similarly, the young participants are prepared to become future leaders, in a context of fast transformation, deep change, high stake conflicts and increased complexity of relations. It is the place where the promotion and the diffusion of the mission of Rondine begin.
