DetailsAbout
The overall objective is to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and to fight the spread of the HI- virus by improving our tools of information and communication used to convey the message of prevention and the promotion of sexual behaviour change to individuals and communities, especially youth.

Our immediate goal is to bring key persons from the informal and formal educational sector together. We want the participants to get to know each other, to build relationships, to explore and deepen their level of knowledge and understanding of the different dimensions of the disease (biological, medical, socio-cultural, psychological and spiritual).
By sharing ideas and experiences and through inter-active practices (discussion, role-play, dance, theatre, etc.) mutual understanding will be enhanced and creativity stimulated.

The participants are invited to reflect and discuss the gaps between different groups of society, the degrees of their vulnerability, and gaps between messages of prevention and the actual sexual behaviour of individuals, sexual norms and religious values, reason (science) and belief - and explore possible solutions.

Different learning and teaching methods and models for community education, involvement, work and empowerment will be presented.

The conference is meant to be the basis for the development of regular work-shops, seminars and sensitisation activities spread across the country and for the establishment of both information centres in some communities and common local, national and international networks (on the ground and in the internet) and thereby enable effective and meaningful future communication, collaboration and coordination among youth, other peer groups and active organizations.

Conference Approaches:
Active participation and personal contribution of costs like transport and accommodation, knowledge and skills - all according to the participant´s facilities; inter-active learning and teaching; sharing of experience, ideas and problems; analytical-methodological (i.e. brainstorming, SWOT ), artistic and self-explorative approaches.

Themes (planned):
Status quo of the epidemic
H/A and vulnerability
