Seeds of Peace has worked in Europe since 1998, when we adapted our conflict transformation model to work with youth and educators from both sides of divided Cyprus, Greece, and Turkey.
In 2000, we expanded yet again to nine countries in the Balkans. In total, more than 450 youth and educators took part in those programs and remain part of our alumni community dedicated to transforming conflict through economic, social, and political change.
Since 2006, Seeds of Peace has been active in the United Kingdom. Each year, we bring a cohort of exceptional youth to attend our Camp in Maine, host our Fellowship impact accelerator at a British institution, and convene regular events and symposia on topics related to conflict transformation in divided communities. Seeds of Peace UK also has a dedicated group of alumni, parents, volunteers, and supporters that actively engage the public in its programs. To learn more, contact Diala Saadeh in London.
We are currently exploring opportunities to work in partnership with communities throughout Europe that are experiencing tensions around anti-Semitism, Islamaphobia, and integration of refugees and immigrants into society. If you would be interested in learning more about these new initiatives, please contact Eva Armour.
