From 18.-25.01.2015. a group of 10 activists, journalists, NGO workers and representatives of government institutions from Ukraine are visiting Sarajevo.

The group is participating in a USAID program in cooperation with World Learning "Do No Harm: Fostering Conflict-Sensitivity in Southern and Eastern Ukraine" which is implemented in BiH by the Peace Academy.

During their residence in Sarajevo, the participants will have the opportunity to learn from the experiences of civil society, media and other key actors related to peacebuilding and conflict transformation in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The goal of the program is developing conflict-sensitive programs which reduce violence and strengthen peacebuilding processes.

The guests from the Ukraine include representatives of NGOs working on protecting minority rights and vulnerable groups (HIV-positive individuals, handicapped), media as well as local government from Zaporozhe and Kharkov region.
