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!

Hello all! We at CIM hope you had a wonderful summer! The summer of 2016 has been extremely busy, but extremely fun and successful for the Center for Peacebuilding! In August the Center hosted our annual Peace Camp for Bosnian and Herzegovinian youth! We had 30 youth from all over the country come to CIM’s Garden of Opportunity to learn peace-building skills! We also hosted our first Peace Caravan! We hosted panels on peace building all over Bosnia and Herzegovina with participants! It has been a very busy summer, but a very successful and exciting one! 

CIM hosted young people from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina, from different backgrounds, for a 7-day peace camp! At the camp the young people learned peace building skills as well as lessons in healing and reconciliation. The young people also learned how to be peace builders in their own communities, with trainings in how to host peace building activities on their own. It was hosted at CIM’s Garden of Opportunities and was a great success for the future of peace building!

Peace Camp Activities

  1. Council: This activity involved participants learning how to speak openly and listening to each other with no judgment or interruption.
  2. Dialogues: This activity involved participants learning how they could influence their communities towards peace building.
  3. Identity Workshops: This activity focused on participants recognizing their own identities, and how to work with them.
  4. Round Table: The theme of this round table was “Why young people are leaving Bosnia and Herzegovina and what young people can do about it”

After finishing CIM’s Peace Camp participants travelled throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina on CIM’s Peace Caravan for six days. On the Peace Caravan participants hosted panel discussions in 6 different cities throughout the country. The theme of the panel discussions was “What youth can do to work towards peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina”. These panel discussions were held in Sanski Most, Glamoc, Sarajevo, Mostar, Milici and Doboj. Throughout the Caravan participants were able to learn about the history and culture of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In Sarajevo participants got to be a part of the Omladinski Film Festival, while in Doboj and Mostar participants got to explore historical ruins. The panels in all the cities were highly successful and sparked important discussions about peace building in Bosnia and Herzegovina. CIM’s first every Peace Caravan was a great success!

 

Peace and Love,

The CIM Team
