11 Jul Imagine Peace
‘Imagine Peace’ was an international network project from 2003 till 2006 in remembrance on Bertha von Suttner, and her being the first female Nobel-Peace-Price laureate in the year 1915.
The objective of our project was to bring about new images of peace in distinction to the general negative-definition of peace as the absence of war.
We presented the results of this project and a discussion on the idea of conflicts as the potentialities for personal growth in the festive hall of the Vienna Town Hall.
Children and young people from 11 European countries participated producing creative work about their visions of peace like paintings, music, dances and poetry, hence demonstrating peace as the result of dealing with tensions and conflict-experiences of all kind in an active and constructive way.
