This years Peace Week was orginazed from 16th September to 21st September, we had a lot of activities and workshops in which young people and our volunteers had the chance to participate, learn new stuff and also help to organize our event.

In cooperation with Youth for Peace we had students from the elementary school at the farm where we together were searching food sources in nature in order to prevent poverty. We organized this activity to mark the International Day of the Fight against Poverty. 

We are also in the proccess of organizing next year two Peace Camps and two Peace Caravans.Since 2004. Center for Peacebuilding organizes Peace camps on which young people from all Bosnia and Herzegovina would adopt knowlegde in the field of peace-building, nonviolent conflict resolution and breaking prejudices and stereotypes. These camps bring young people from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, and provide a safe space for participants to create relationships with each other and to build trust.

We want to thank everyone who helps us educate young people in Bosnia and Herzegovina about the importance of preserving peace and coexistence.

It's late summer and we enjoy the warm weather and waiting for this year's Peace Camp.

Although our practice so far was to held the camp in August, this year is a bit different.
As you all know, all our activities depend on donors, so we had to delay it a bit. But no matter what, we have already taken a series of activities to make everything go smoothly and we are currently in the selection phase of the young camp participants.

As always, we want a diverse group, so we take this process very seriously.

The Peace Farm is ready to receive about 25 young people and provide them with a comfortable and secure environment where they will learn about peace, reconciliation, prejudice and how to fight them.

We want to thank everyone who helps us educate young people in Bosnia and Herzegovina about the importance of preserving peace and coexistence.

Hello from Sanski Most!

 

The summer is about to start officially and this means that we here in Center for Peacebuilding are already getting ready for our annual peace camp.

The camp will be held in the last week of August and until then we have a lot of work to do. 
We are currently in the selection phase of participants from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina who will spend 7 unforgettable days at the CIM's Peace Farm where the camp will be located.

 

As last year the camp will be work-educational, which means that beside the educational workshops wich will be led by CIM’s directors, we will have a working part too where participants will work on the arrangement and cleaning of the farm.

The educational part will focus on topics such as identities, prejudices, stereotypes as well as peacebuilding and resources in our local communities that we need for our future peace activities.

We are very happy and we are looking forward to welcoming young participants at our 14th Peace Camp.

Peace and love from our CIM team

Hello Everyone.

Spring has officially arrived, but only according to the calendar because Bosnia is covered with the snow and and dealing with really cold wheather these days.

But this is not an obstacle for us to do what we know and love, which is to build peace.

We at the Center are focused on preparations for our 14th peace camp.

So, in this period we apply for grants to implement a peace-camp and a peace caravan. We are preparing the invitations for the participants and are in the process of program making so that we can make the participants' experience as transormative as possible.

Considering our previous experience, we do not doubt that this year, with the help of our donors, sponsors and all the people who support us, we will have another successful peace camp that will help young people to overcome their prejudices and stereotypes, and through their personal transformation become the bearers of positive change for a better Bosnia and Herzegovina.

With love and appreciation,

CIM Team

On behalf of everyone here at Center for Peacebuilding we would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a fantastic New Year. 2017 was extremely productive for us, all thanks to you and your generous donations. In 2018 we will continue to build peace for all of us and build a better world for future generations.

After our Peace camp in August several participants came back in Sanski Most to attent various peace-building lectures and workshops that we held within our 8th International Peace Week in September.

One of them launched the Ecumenical Initiative through which she wants to bring together religious leaders in her community to work together and to be an example of good practice where religious leaders contribute to peace building in BiH.

Inspired by the Peace Camp, a large number of participants wanted to do more for peace in our country so they have decided to join local organizations or initiatives who are doing peace activities.

Participants of this year's camp spread their impressions from the Peace Camp among their friends and colleagues so we already have new interested participants for the Peace Camp in 2018.

We will keep you informed about the progress of our project participants in their own communities. We would like to say a massive, sincere thank you for all of your support in 2017. Your generous donations have helped us continue our work, and now CIM is growing into an internationally renouned organisation.

Once again, we wish you a nice and relaxed end of the year, and all the best for 2018.
