Event description

Description

“The emotional consequences for individual persons that resulted from segregation and violence during the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina were dramatic. Even if these emotions are less visible in the media today, they are still very present in the communities and are transmitted from generation to generation. On the assumption that the basis to understand others and to live in peace with others is the understanding of oneself, the NGO SANCHILD with the support of Justin Friedmann from Deep Democracy and Rotary organized in Sarajevo recently a seminar with the title ”From inner Peace to outer Peace ”. At the end participants were requesting that such seminars are organized all over in the region, bringing hope for a better and collaborative future.

The workshop will be opened by Ivana Zdravkovic, Rotary Peace Ambassador from Belgrade with a plea to promote peace and mutual understanding in the Balkan region. Sanela Music, President of SANCHILD and herself a former refugee from Bosnia and Herzegovina, will explain the basic concept of the pilot seminar. Amina Agovic, one of the participants of the pilot seminar in Sarajevo, will share her experience and explain why she is requesting that such seminars are organized all over the Balkan region and Ognjen Gogic, Rotary Peace Fellow from Serbia, will share his enthusiasm of realizing such a project for the region and give a vision for the future.

The workshop will be held in English and translated into French.”
