WorkshopS on 3 levels of peace

Action for Peace #77

What happened?

4 workshops took place in different regions in Russia: Grozny (Chechnya), Makhachkala (Dagestan), and Magas (Ingushetia). In Grozny there was such a big interest in the topic of peace that the event was organised twice. In total, 88 participants took part.

The events explored 3 levels of peace (inner peace, peace with others and peace with nature), encouraging participants to share their realities and to reflect on the importance of peace. In some events, there were people with different ethical backgrounds and it was interesting to work in that atmosphere due to the different cultures.

Participants said they now could hear and listen more carefully to each other, and it let the community see different perspectives of peace. In Grozny, the main focus was on discussing volunteering for peace, and the connection it has with peace itself.

As participants said on the final feedback, it helped them to hear each other and to deeply understand the meaning and importance of peace, and it gave the opportunity to look at things from “the other side”.
