Center for Peacebuilding

Our way is peace

CIM TEAM On September - 15 - 2015

International Peace Week has been annually hosted by the Center for Peacebuilding since 2010, hence this year we mark the 6th anniversary of our peace activism project. This year is no exception to the previous years’ pattern, where, for a whole week, we mobilise our local community and international friends and supporters to campaign and advocated for peace at home and worldwide.

This year’s peace week will begin on the 16th of September and end on the International Day of Peace, on September 21st. The seminars and activities planned are opened to people of all ages and backgrounds from the local community. In total 10 lectures will be facilitated on themes such as: local peacebuilding, religion and interreligious dialogue, structural violence, gender and peace, and more. We will organise open interreligious concerts, dance sessions, art activities for children, and a ‘live library’ with our partners from the Helsinki Citizen’s Assembly in Banja Luka.

The programme will be concluded with a ‘Coffee for Peace’ meeting, where peace activists from the local community gather and have discussions on peace programming, and improving peace week activities.

Our international Peace Week is funded with grants from Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, AJ Muste Foundation, Mennonite Central Committee, and Lush Foundation.
