10 rules4peace - or how to have a good time at peaceamp
  1. DO always communicate in English, which is the language common to all on peacecamp. It does not matter if you make mistakes. You can always ask a friend or an adult to help you translate or express yourself in English.

  2. DO always address people directly: talk TO – not ABOUT somebody.

  3. DO respect the structure and time-table of the peacecamp: DO arrive on time and attend ALL meals and workshops. All meals have to be taken in the youth hostel.

  4. DO share and express your opinions and feelings openly, frankly. DO stand up for your convictions. DO tell us if something bothers you, but do this respectfully in a way that won’t hurt others.

  5. DO respect rest- and sleeping-hours of the people in and around the youth hostel. In Austria resting hour starts at 10 pm – please no loud voices and music in the street after this hour. If you play music after this hour, please close the windows, so that the neighbours can sleep undisturbed.

  6. DO treat the space and environment with respect and care. DO observe waste separation. We have separate bins for plastic, paper, metal, organic and “general” waste as well as for bottles. Our Austrian friends will show you how to do this.

  7. DO NOT hurt, offend or attack others – neither verbally nor in action. Fight for your views and convictions, but do this respectfully and try to listen to the other person’s viewpoint.

  8. DO NOT damage or waste things: Handle equipment with respect and care. DO leave rooms and equipment as you would like to find them. Try to keep the in- and outdoor space clean and beautiful.

  9. DO keep the peacecamp area free of cigarettes, alcohol and drugs of any kind.

  10. DO give your best and DO take home as much as you can. Remember that in order to receive, you must be ready to give.

Please remember: We are coming from different countries, cultures and religions. We may be eating different food, wearing different clothes, have different life styles. Let us find ways to experiment with the new while respecting each other’s social norms.

Have a wonderful time – Your peacecamp 2020 team

peacecamp 2020: Make the impossible possible

peacecamp 2020: Make the impossible possible
Lackenhof, Lower Austria, July 7th - 17th, 2020

peacecamp 2020 will bring together Jewish Israeli and Arab-Palestinian pupils from Israel with peers from Austria and Hungary to spend together ten days in the remote and picturesque village Lackenhof in the Austrian mountains. Each group coached and accompanied by an adult from its own surroundings, will bring to the encounter an account of its personal, cultural and religious background and of the current social and political issues prevailing in the respective groups and countries.

A team of artists, educators, teachers and a group analyst will elaborate with them on these issues, using “4 questions about peace” as guideline through the obstacles and possible solutions of the problems and conflicts prevailing in their societies. peacecamp will try to raise awareness of individual and group resources and to develop and spread skills apt to cope with, and resolve problems in non-violent, creative ways, based on knowledge and mutual understanding.

Work will be done in pleasurable, playful and mindful manner leading to a final “show4peace” at which the newly appointed Ambassadors of Peace will show on stage what they experienced and learned during this encounter.
