the office of The Norwegian Peace Centre this summer from
Kornhaug in Gausdal to
the Nansen Academy in Lillehammer.
very short inform you about some of our activities. In September we organised a
seminar with young Afghans living in Norway and Sweden; to encourage networking
among them and to provide a "space" for dealing with the situation in
Afghanistan. The seminar was organised in cooperation with the Norwegian
Afghanistan Committee, a solidarity organisation for Afghanistan with main
offices in Oslo and Peshawar, but also with substantial activity inside
Afghanistan. Do you know if any of the other European peace organisations have
programs with Afghan refugees living in Europe?? I would be interested to know
of any initiatives.
work towards schools in Norway offering workshops and training to teachers and
students. Every summer we have been organising a summer camp with Service Civil
International and the local refugee hostel, so also this summer. We have
activities with the students at The Nansen Academy and have organised several
meetings this autumn about the special challenges for the Peace organisastions
after Sept. 11 in providing realistic non-violent alternatives.
interested in receiving information from you and your organisation and maybe we
will find common ground for some of our activities. Thank you for your patience.
Grande Director The Norwegian Peace Centre
