Young Peacebuilders create a network


The second Berghof Summer School took place in the Georg Zundel Haus in Tuebingen with 16 participants from Armenia, Egypt, Georgia, Germany, India, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Ivory Coast and Rwanda. They created a network to inspire and support each other in the challenging work for peace. The young people work in refugee camps, in NGOs, in museums, in research or peace activism. During the one week programme they exchanged their experiences and discussed principles and strategies of nonviolence. The participants were very excited about the interactive peace education methods used. They can apply them now in their countries with their own target groups and thus enlarge the network of young peacebuilders.
