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.

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
