Example of Event Review
The participants were a mixture of people from various community and culture. There were people from different community, culture, ethnicity, complexion, and religion. Almost all of us came to know each other on every 1st day. But everyone was concerned about being the best in whatever ways they could; that included me too. In fact, everybody was trying to present the best in a very formal way. Formalities presented were very similar to each other though they came from different places, cultures and countries. But as time went by the hidden beings were gradually revealed, and cultural and ethnical differences were obvious and realistic.
After the workshop was formally started, and as the days were slipping by, everyone could come along with their own reality and background. People were more friendly and cooperative, and they respected each other and started accepting and sharing each other’s cultural differences.
Though strikes called out by the campaigner was escalating and crippling daily like outside, we were entering deep inside the subject matter. Skills knowledge and experience were continuously being imparted to us which were realized to be an effective agent for peaceful change and as well as we were trying to overcome challenges by circulating peace message by sharing experiences and imparting various knowledge and skills. Life experiences that were shared by the facilitators were so lively and emotional that we felt as if we were feeling them. There were times when I nearly burst out into tears when Trainer shared his personal experience of being victimized the problems he went through during those days.
What I personally felt is that negligence, avoidance, compulsive sacrifice does never help to solve the problem; rather understanding others needs and concerns, respecting self and others, listening unheard voices are the keys to solve any problems. We also came to know the importance of networking and learned why one instrument couldn’t create an orchestra.
Through this training youth activist like us are very much encouraged to work to enhance peace work promote human right practices on both community and help of new network formed; be it by leveraging existing networks and relationship, be it by employing media for awareness-raising, legal education or be it by imparting knowledge, skills and sharing experiences to empower people and make them self dependent.
I believe that such workshops are critical to know cultural differences and individual perspectives. After perceiving from the perspective of other’s perspective, we can estimate what actually is the cause of various conflicts that occur in every part of the world. And hence we can initiate peace works right from the local community by respecting individual rights and accepting cultural and ethnic differences for managing and transforming conflicts as the root cause of any conflicts is insensitiveness and disrespect to other culture, identity and rights. And, time and again right from the ancient time youths have been continuously being exploited and used in violent activities be it from the Government side or the rebels’ side, be it in the name of religion or the name of identity or be it in the name of nationality or the name of superiority. Now the time has come to support youths in peace works.
It is also the responsibility of the youths to promote Human Rights practices and work of peace. Is violence the very nature of youths? Are youths only the weapon for violence? Are youth so aggressive that they only bring about destruction, vandalism and disturbances in this world? Can’t they be involved in recreational work like saving humanity, restoration of peace, protection of the Women Rights, Child Rights? These queries have really been the biggest agenda in developing nations. Now, the time has ripened, and it’s really high time for the youths to prove that they also have a compassionate heart that can love humanity, adore their existence. They also have the spirit of saving this beautiful earth and set an example to every human. And youth power can be the greatest power to bring humanity together to restore peace.
And for this reason, inspired by the March workshop, we have designed new projects that will be initiated in our community. Though these projects we aspire to share whatever we learned with community, people, friends, other organization so that we youths can also contribute to providing an opportunity to gain peace, to reduce the impact of on-going violence and human right abuses through mutual collaboration and co-ordination for long term sustainability of peace and development.
