“EPTO’s vision is that people enjoy learning from each other how to embrace their differences and realize their unique potential.”
For young people in Europe EPTO wants to contribute towards this vision by promoting and developing peer training.
Peer’ means equal. Your ‘peer’ is someone in whom you see a part of yourself. Someone ‘like you’ in one or more aspects of your identity.
For EPTO that counts a lot! By recognizing someone as your peer, you will be able to imagine how that person may feel… ‘be in his or her shoes’.
You can find peers in the same age group but also in sharing other traits such as ethnicity, religious or philosophical belief, gender, sexual orientation, physical or personality traits, personal style, history, origins, cultural and educational background – just to mention some of them.
Making that connection is the first step in learning about how to respect others.
