On 20th September the first Berghof Summer School for Young Peacebuilders started in Tübingen. The Summer School takes place at the Georg Zundel House of the Berghof Foundation.
In 2014 violent conflicts and wars have shaken the world. However, in all conflict areas there are people who speak out against the use of violence and who are committed to a more peaceful world. Thereby, the role of young people receives increasing attention. They need encouragement and support.
Therefore, the Berghof Foundation offers 15 young adults for the first time the opportunity to take part in the Summer School in Tübingen. The participants came from Abkhazia, Columbia, Egypt, Germany, Georgia, Honduras, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Macedonia and Palestine. Partner and donors of the Summer School are:
The Friends of Berghof Peace Education, the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa) / zivik, the Kreissparkasse Tübingen, the company TATA interactive Systems, Unitar and the university town of Tübingen.
