The Peace Young People Wish to Build in Bosnia and Herzegovina
20 September 2022
Following a youth essay and art competitions conducted by the OSCE and the United Nations in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2020 and 2021 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Dayton Peace Agreement and the country’s commitment towards Agenda2030, the two organizations gathered a selection of essays and pieces of art in a publication that presents literary and artistic reflections of young people regarding peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The publication entitled The Peace Young People Wish to Build in BiH was presented on the occasion of the International Peace Day 2022.
"We thank the young people whose works are featured in this book, for their honesty, openness and vision. Young people across Bosnia and Herzegovina are carrying out positive and constructive actions on a daily basis. We hope that this book reminds others that protecting and promoting peace are equally both essential and inspirational acts that lead citizens, communities and entire countries toward a more prosperous and promising future for all." - Ms. Ingrid Macdonald, the United Nations Resident Coordinator in BiH, and Ms. Kathleen Kavalec, Head of OSCE Mission in BiH.
