Meet Yap Sun Sun - creativity-and-fun expert

Dear Peace Campers, my name is Yap Sun Sun .Yap is my family name, my family came from China originally and we are known as the Hakka, which means "Guest People", because the tribe had to migrate many times from central China to other parts due to many wars.
I have never been in a war myself but somehow all the traveling done by my ancestors must have stayed in my blood. I have travelled much and now here I am in Austria.
I work and live in Austria together with my son, Apollo and his dad, Andi. I can't really believe that it has been almost ten years since I came to Austria and that it would already be the second Peace camp I am attending, even though the Peace camp last year is still so fresh in my mind. I still keep up with the young people from last year via FB!
I am really looking forward to meet you all and share some creative time together!
See ya! Sun Sun

Ronny, the "jack-of-all-trades"

Hi, I am Ronny, Evelyn's husband. We are going to have peacecamp no. 9, and it will also be MY ninth peacecamp. My job is to keep everything under control – or at least to try it. I am in charge of all kind of technical issues that have to be organized, so the peacecamp will run smoothly. And with the help of all of you, it will be success no. 9!
Looking forward to seeing you soon!

This is Evelyn, a believer in peace

evelyn&ronny showing "peacecamp" at the Jewish street-festival in Vienna

I am Evelyn.
I dream of a world which people of all nations and religions
can share in mutual respect and peace
I believe in the possibility of change
as a result of dialogue
and the wish to understand one another
I believe in the possibility to accept
another person’s or group’s viewpoint
even if you don’t share it
I don’t accept violence, vengeance, war or terror
as a way to resolve conflicts
between people and nations
I believe in the strength of compromise and sharing
I believe in the beauty of a world of peace
