News / Youth from Western Balkans cooperate for peace
Non-Governmental Organisations from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia gathered young people from these countries as part of a youth exchange programme supported by the Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO). The gathering took place from 10 to 15 August in Krujë, Albania where young people had an opportunity to learn about peacebuilding and conflict resolution in society. The participants also explored topics such as identity, prejudice, stereotypes, and intercultural diversity.
“We believe that this is a journey, on which I as a young person can get to know my own self and to realise who I want to be, what kind of a person I want to be, what beliefs and what values I want to live, what kind of a society I want to live in, and how I as an individual can contribute to creating it,”said Ms Ljijana Šotra, a project representative from the Balkans, Let’s Get Up! organisation.
The exchange was implemented as part of the “P.A.C.E. – Peace and Conflict Education” project supported by RYCO and co-financed by the European Union.
