Meet Evelyn, your host4peace

I am Evelyn
I started peacecamp in 2004. It was meant to be a one-time-project, allowing youngsters from Israel/Palestine to get a time out from violence. Meanwhile we are doing the 18th peaceamp and have four groups of participants - young Palestinian and Jewish Israelis, and youth from Austria and from Hungary. peacecamp takes place each year in July in a pittoresque region in the midst of Austrian mountains. peacecamp is meant to search for non-violent ways to cope with problems and conflicts.
I believe that conflicts are perpetuated because people usually do not ask themselves how they themselves could contribute to resolve a conclict. Conflicting parties usually point an accusing finger at each other: "YOU should have..." YOU should not have..."
Mutual accusations are a waste of energy and never led to anything constructive. I therefore want to challenge young people to think about the problems they face in their own region and to think of creative ways to confront them.
I also believe that it is necessary to get to know, to learn to listen to, and to understand other nations, cultures and religions in order to live peacefully together.
