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.

Hello All!

We at the Center for Peacebuilding hope you have had a wonderful summer. We sure did!
Summer has always been our busiest time of the year, we've spent it working, preparing and having fun also.
In August the Center organized its thirteenth Peace Camp!

25 young people from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina were participants of the camp we held on CIM’s Peace Farm (Garden of Opportunities) in Sanski Most.

This year’s Peace Camp was different from the previous ones, because besides the educational workshops led by CIM’s directors, together with our regional coordinators, it had a working part. This meant that the participants divided into groups worked on the arrangement of our Peace Farm, cleaning the garbage, destroying the harmful ambrosia, making an outside toilet, cleaning a part of the forest where they made a table and benches.

In the evening young people gathered around the bonfire where they sang songs of different traditions and got to know each other better.

The educational part involved workshops on identities, prejudices, stereotypes as well as peacebuilding and resources in our local communities that we need for our future peace activities. Our participants also learned about the cauncil, a method used in peacebuilding. This activity involved participants learning how to speak openly and listening to each other with no judgment or interruption.

Through work and socializing, participants slowly shattered the prejudices they had about others that are different from them.

The youth once again showed that they are for peace and reconciliation, that they do not see differences among themselves as something that should keep them apart but as something that they need to learn from each other. Regardless of their different backgrounds, they realized that there are a lot more of things that connect them than things that separate them.

The camp has encouraged many new ideas for future peace activities and we can proudly say that it was more than successful.

Peace and Love,

The entire CIM Team

Hello from Sanski Most!

We hope you all have had a wonderful start to your summer! Summertime has officially begun in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and with it comes CIM's annual Peace Camp! We have been hard at work planning for it, and cannot wait! 

This year's peace camp will be at the end of August and will take place at the Center for Peacebuilding's Peace Farm and Garden of Opportunities. We held our Peace Camp there last year, and the peace camp participants loved learning about peacebuidling in nature! 

This year's camp will also be a reunion camp! CIM has been running peace camp's for over 10 years now, so for 2017 CIM is inviting all former camp participants back to CIM for a peace camp reunion! There will still be peacebuilder trainings, nonviolent communication workshops, and seminars on how to peacebuilders in your own community. CIM will also be adding networking activities to this years camp, allowing participants to form connections to peacebuilders working throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina. This will help grow CIM's new peace network project, the goal is to create a map of all groups, organizations and individuals working for peace in the country! 

Peace Camp 2017 is looking great, and the entire CIM team is very excited and thanks you again for your generous donations. It's through your support that we are able to make these camps possible! 

Peace and Love, 

The entire CIM Team

2016 has been an incredible year for the Center for Peacebuilding and it is all because of our incredible donors like you! So first of all we would like to say thank you, the generosity we saw given to us during this years Year End Campaign was astounding. We were so touched by all the donations we recived, and we cannot say thank you enough! 

Our plans for our Peacebuidling Camp and Caravan for 2017 are underway! After a highly successful 2016 we are looking forward to our plans for the following year! We have heard from countless peacebuilders on the postive impacts peacebuilding and our peace camps have had on their lives, and how many of them now want to dedicate their lives to building peace in the communities and country. All of this would not have been possible without your donations!
