The participants of this training will be 10 Ukrainian activists and humanitarian workers from conflict-affected areas who work in various capacities on peacebuilding in the Ukraine. Their particular areas of focus are work with displaced people, education and work with youth, and socially-vulnerable populations.
The goal of the visit is increasing knowledge and skills of the participants in the field of peacebuilding and conflict resolution through examples in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The participants of the program will be able to learn to know the work and lessons learned from actors in BiH regarding peacebuilding. An important component of the program is connecting small groups of participants with peers from similar professional backgrounds from BiH.
