UNRCCA COMPLETES THE APRIL SERIES OF PREVENTIVE DIPLOMACY ACADEMY TRAINING SEMINARS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE FROM CENTRAL ASIA AND AFGHANISTAN
In April 2022, within the Preventive Diplomacy Academy (PDA) initiative framework, UNRCCA held two training workshops for youth in Central Asia and Afghanistan. The workshops were attended by 36 PDA participants, including two youth representatives from Afghanistan.
On 6 April, the Preventive Diplomacy Academy participants debated the "Emotional Intelligence" topic. The students received learning materials on the definition of the emotional intelligence components, their development, and self-control of the basic emotions for enhancing stress resistance.
In the second half of the month, PDA students participated in a three-day workshop on Conflict Prevention and Digital Security. The seminar participants gained knowledge in the field of the theory of conflicts and their classification. Furthermore, the PDA trainees learned how to respond to conflict situations within the framework of peacebuilding, peacekeeping and conflict resolution management. In addition, the workshop participants were informed about digital security and conflict prevention methods, including digital conflict prevention methods in peacebuilding. During this seminar, theoretical knowledge was worked out during practical exercises using historical examples of UN peacekeeping activities since 1945.
