This week Adnan will receive his visa to attend the 2017 Sarajevo Symposium! Creative Learning would like to thank you for making this opportunity available to him. We are also excited to have someone with his background and experiences contribute his insights to the group this summer.
Thanks to your investment Adnan will have the opportunity to build a support network with people with similar passions and commitments to serve their communities. Adnan will be equipped through lectures from transcending experts, including: Hind Kabawat, Member of the High Negotiations Committee at the Syrian Peace Talks; Dr. Sabina Cehajic-Clancy, Associate Prof. of Political Psychology at the Sarajevo School of Science and Technology; and former President of Croatia, Prof. Dr. Ivo Josipovic. IPSI staff will also be available to Adnan and the other participants to help them plan and execute long-term goals.
Through simulations, exercises and lectures, the Sarajevo Symposium will offer valuable trainings on topics such as police reform, reconciliation, the role of the private sector in transformation and UN missions, among additional skills necessary in post-conflict transitions. The Sarajevo Symposium will send Adman home with a new set of skills, confidence, networks and a tangible vision for his community in Mosul, Iraq.
While Conflict Resolution leaders can offer a framework for peacebuilding in conflict-stricken areas, we need more representatives from various professional fields and cultural backgrounds to engage in conflict transformation in their community. Your investment has allowed us to make this training accessible to locals like Adman who would not be able to participate otherwise.
