This Peace Counts training of trainers was an opportunity for civil society activists from Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia to exchange their visions of a peaceful future and to reflect upon their own potential as peacebuilders. The training revolved around stories about good practice in peacebuilding from around the world. In discussions about foreign conflicts, such as those in Israel-Palestine, Rwanda or Nigeriam, and their respective peacebuilding efforts, participants were invited to consider their own situations and possible solutions.
The training was conducted October 17-20, 2013 and facilitated by Anne Romund, Dr. Andrea Zemskov-Züge and Dr. Oliver Wolleh. It is part of a long-term dialogue process in the Caucasus that the Berghof Foundation has been engaged in for many years. Peace Counts on Tour 2013 was funded by the Federal Foreign Office through its funding programme zivik.
