Mir = Päqe = Peace


"I was shocked by how little we understand each others' languages!" said a volunteer at a recent inter-ethnic gathering in South Serbia. Language barriers have become a significant problem, with young people from Albanian, Roma and Serbian communities unable to understand each other – a situation which contributes to stereotyping and ignorance about each other’s perspectives. The MDG-F is working to improve understanding between ethnic groups: at last year’s International Day of Peace celebration, young people from 13 municipalities gathered to write messages of peace and express their hopes for the future.
