Background of the project

We define ourselves as a peace organisation and are an official peace messenger through our network ICYE (www.icye.org).

Grenzenlos is running international projects and exchanges since nearly 70 years. In the last years we dedicated our trainings to the topics of civil courage and human rights.

The Grenzenlos board of managers decided a theme for this 2018 and 2019: “Peace Work”.

The training is part of a bigger strategy on promoting peace and the contribution of volunteering to it. In October 2018 we implemented a first seminar “Volunteering as a tool for Peace”, in May 2018 we worked in a training seminar on how voluntary organizations can support their volunteers to become peace messengers and as a last step we would like to explore together with you how we can implement peace campaigns within our existing projects and activities.

Please note: A campaign does not need to cost a lot to be effective!

Depending on your organisational needs and resources we will design a campaign such as a Facebook campaign, street campaigns, action days, etc.
