  2. Imagine - what does the word peace mean to you in the context of your own life?

Peace is waking up every morning with the feeling of serenity and freedom, not having to worry about hearing of another case of murder, of innocent men, women and children on a racial basis or as a result of a cruel war every time you’re about to watch the news.

  1. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?

I will not lose hope I’ll fight for my rights and other people’s rights as well…There are a lot of ways to contribute to bring peace into our region, first to try and make people from both sides meet more in order to get to know each other because when you know the other side you are more willing to compromise and respect their needs, And second explain to the people that choosing war will bring more devastation and injustice, killing and suffering for both sides.

    opinion):

  2. Imagine - what does the word peace mean to you in the context of your own life?

The word peace means that people live together without hate, racism, discrimination with equal rights and benefits no matter of their beliefs, race, and religion. Peace is when there is no killing, wars, stealing, rape or any crime in any form. But sadly the world that we live in hasn’t even come close to that state of being.

  1. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?

In my life, there are many obstacles to peace. As an Arab, I always feel the racism that people have for me just because I’m an Arab. These people in most cases don’t know any Arabs, the only thing that they know about Arabs is what they see in the movies and in the news, they never stop to think that there are over a billion Arabs in the world and that they cannot judge all these people according to what they see in the media. Another big obstacle is that there are many people in my race who have been kicked out of their land and had their land stolen in the 1948 war, and until these people get the right to return to this land, there will be a very slight chance for peace in the region we live in.

  1. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?

In the land that I live in, which is filled with hate and racism, I promote peace by showing people of other races which live here who think all Arabs are terrorists and that if I identify myself as a Palestinian Arab I automatically hate Jews that I don’t hate Jews or any certain race and that I live in peace with them in one city and one piece of land. I think that changing the way Arabs and Jews think about each other is the best way to promote peace in this part of the world.

  1. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
    I will continue to change the way people think about Arabs by showing them that most Arabs are peaceful people and that we can live side by side with different races peacefully.

It means to me :1) good relations between two nations .
2)two nations that understand each other and which seeks for others nation’s good too

The main obstacles are : 1) people that think they are better than others or in other words racism
2)prejudice , people think they know who other people are because of articles, movies, commercial that shows a false image of the person. Which can create hate !
3)bad leadership . many parents teach their children to hate others . then these children grow up and teach their children to hate others too. which creates a circle of hate that couldn’t be stopped .

  1. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?

I have went to many summer camps where there are Arab and Jewish children . I live in a mostly Jewish neighborhood. I hangout with Jewish friends and try to understand their side of the conflict

_ 9. MaRiaa Shiban, Birth Date 09/06/1996, The Orthodox Arab College.

  1. Imagine - what does the word peace mean to you in the context of your own life?

The word peace means to me living in a world without racism, without people judging you just because of your skin color, your religion, or any other group of people you belong to.
Peace means that every single person has the right to express himself knowing that other people will accept his opinion or at least try to understand.

  1. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?

The main obstacles to peace are:
(1) There are many people with prejudices that refuse to listen to the other side.
(2) The existence of dictatorship in different countries – which prevents people from expressing their opinions.

  1. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
    I studied for five years in a school which it’s purpose is teaching the students to listen to different opinions, trying to understand the other side, listening to thing from different points of view.
    Nowadays the only thing that I can do to promote peace is to be open-minded, to listen to others & accepting different opinions.
  1. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?

I don’t know if I can change other people, but I know that I will always listen to people from the other side, listen to what they think, to the story from their point of view.
Never judge anyone before I get to know him personally because even though he seems to look different or we belong to different religions or any other thing, he can be a better person that a person who has the same skin color like me and speak the same language and has the same religion.

  1. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?

14. Bath-Sahaw , Austrian group

  1. Imagine - what does the word peace mean to you?

I think the word peace describes the ability of people to live together in a world with as little conflicts as possible. Of course I understand that it would be utopia to suggest a society without conflicts, but I think we can avoid them by talking to each other and not forcing fights in a violent way. I think peace means to accept each other, it doesn’t mean everyone has to be friends, but at least we should respect the other ones rights and needs.

  1. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?

I think money and borders play important parts in the circle of war and peace, because it may occur that a fight in a global background starts because of different opinions, or as in many examples from history visible, because of religions, but what usually follows is just the expansion of the problem on other fields (land).

  1. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?

Maybe my work for a student’s page of a newspaper tries to unite, I wrote some articles on the topic of peace and intercultural dialogue, but I don’t think this is enough. I think it is important to react, when we even occasionally hear an attack against someone in the underground and react. In my opinion watching is as bad as committing an offense. What might be very important also is to discuss and try to talk to people with different opinions or views on certain topics.

  1. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?

Probably dialogue is important in every context, so I think it is for myself very important to work on that and to make peace visible, because what we hear and see in the media over the day are mostly negative news, so I’d try to make peace work public and show everyone that there does exist an alternative called peace.

  2. Imagine - what does the word peace mean to you in the context of your own life?

Peace means living together in an acceptable life terms without any hatred, racism, wars and prejudice .. A peaceful place can be defined so, when it doesn't include inequality between its people, which involves peace with equal rights and duties to every single person no matter his origins, race, beliefs or belongings .. Peace also requires listening and accepting other people and having mutual respect between both sides and between all the people, because after all we are all humans .

                *                                        *                                        *  
  1. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?

Many obstacles and elements affect on the peacemaking progress in the context of my own life which are mainly : 1)Racism: Not listening, accepting or respecting other people when seeing some differences between people
2) The fact that many people aren't actually composed to different civilizations and cultures, and having stereotypes on them depending to what they hear on radio and see on the T.V and the internet (Media) !!

                *                                        *                                        *  
  1. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?

In my everyday life I always discuss these topics with my family and friends in order to promote the peace in our land !
I listen to different people's opinions and their different points of view and try to accept them .. I am also composed to other races and religions .
Everybody should be so, so the peace can be expanded all over OUR WORLD .

                *                                        *                                        *  
  1. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?

I will continue listening to other opinions .. And I will try to make my opinion and point of view clear so we could live peacefully among earth …


  1. AYALA EHRLICH, Your Birth Date 9/9/1995

Ironi Alef High School, Israel

  1. Imagine - what does the word peace mean to you in the context of your own life?

The word peace means to me to have the possibility to live side by side with people around me and to know that both of us will help the other in case of need. More than that, it means to know and respect each others beliefs, to feel that we both make an effort and try to keep a good relation between us- so we don't let things just happen, we take responsibility of what happens.

  1. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?

In my opinion one of the things that prevents peace is when people close themselves in their own life so they aren't aware of what happens around them and they don't even try because they are satisfied with their own life. This, I think, is one of the reasons why some people don't need or don't want to do anything to promote peace.

  1. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?

I took part in a camp of three days in Kibutz Neve Shalom (a kibutz in which 50% of the inhabitants are Arabs and 50% are Jews). In the camp a group of kids from Tel Aviv met a group from Sahnin and we discussed the israeli-palestinian conflict, how to handle it and the ways to solve it. Now, after that camp I try to stay updated about what happens in the world and I try to talk about it with different people who show me different sides of the same problem.

  1. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?

I think that what I'll do in the future will start in the camp- the first and most important thing I need to do is to learn as much as I can about all the different cultures that surround me, meet and talk with people from all those places and hear their point of view. Then I think it's important to get other people to hear about the experiences I have had so they too, will hear about a different reality than the one they know. With that knowledge and understanding we could act together to promote peace because for a group it's easier to convince and influence society than for an individual.


  1. Gábor Hegedűs, born 21.04.1993, Szent László Gimnázium

  2. Imagine - what does the word peace mean to you in the context of your own life?
    Peace means to me that everybody can tolerate the different lifestyles, and they can live side by side in harmony, but I think in real life it is impossible.

  3. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?
    The political parties don’t have any similar viewpoints in my country, and it makes the decisions harder about what is good, and what is not. On the other hand, I need to be more tolerant than I am now, and I hope that this camp will be the final step to reach this.

  4. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
    If people are arguing about different cultures and ethnical groups, then I calm them down, and help them to talk and solve the problems about these things.
    Otherwise, I know more things about different races and their culture like most people (because I am interested in this topic), so I can tell exciting and interesting things to the others, because if they knew more things about ‘them’, they could tolerate their religion and culture much better.

  5. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
    I like policy, but I do not want to be a politician, so the only way I could help is to tell people that the news and gossips are not true in most cases about the Jews, Afro Americans, or about any other ethnical groups.

    I don't know, but I will look for some things, with which I can promote peace in my country.

    Aside from world-wide snags, every person has his/her own problems. The most important is to try to avoid useless quarrels and confrontations. To achieve this, we have to respect mankind and tolerate each other.

  3. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?
    People are too biased and selfish and prefer their own interest and property.

  4. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
    I think I have been promoting peace in my everyday life by setting a sample for the others, how to make up after a disagreement, how to resolve problems. I like peace in my life and it would be nice if more and more people realised how important it is, so it can become widely accepted and applied. Sometimes I think it is too idealistic,but it would be so nice if it came true.

  5. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
    I think we could show to everybody how important peace is with our behavior, with our way of thinking. We should show to other people how to live in peace.

  5. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country
    I think this is a difficult problem. If I had more power (political), I would take action against racism by making strict laws and rules. In our world, unfortunately there is a lot of racism, it’s getting more and more difficult to calm people.

  1. Matthias Ploder, born 31.1.1995, Akademisches Gymnasium Wien

  2. Imagine - what does the word peace mean to you in the context of your own life?
    World peace means the coexistence of different people, regardless of which culture, religion they take part. It means the willingness to solve problems together that there are not any disadvantages for one side (in the best way) or that the disadvantage is portioned on every side.

  3. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?
    My own incapability to act sometime without a senseless projection of my own problems on another one. May be a “human defect” but that is not an excuse. Sleep deficit may be another reason to stop thinking peaceful.

  4. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
    I try to live in a mind opened way. To stop seeing people as a folk, as a stereotype, as an employee or an employer. I try to understand, to listen carefully. To be able to communicate with the liability to make a fault, to solve a problem together. My friends roots lay (nearly =D I don’t know any Australian) all around the world: from Columbia, to Ghana, Burkina Faso, Iran, Poland, China,…

  5. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country
    I may learn some more languages. (I think one basic of peace is the communication, and the language is an excellent way to exchange mind) I will learn more about foreign cultures. And at least I will “simply” try to care about my friends and family members, to live in peace with them. I cannot change much.. but I try to give my best in the domain I am able to do something.


  1. Isabella Messinger, born 15.5.1995, Akademisches Gymnasium Wien

  2. Imagine - what does the word peace mean to you in the context of your
    own life?
    I’m lucky to live in a peaceful country. Austria, a small country in the center of Europe, has luckily no mayor conflicts with ist neigbouring countries. Personally, I sometimes argue with my parents, but mostly we are peaceful. Sometimes controverses with them are necessary to solve problems.

  3. Imagine - what are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your
    own life?
    The main obstacle for peace is the lack of willingness to listen to each other, causing misunderstanding. Often problems could be solved easily by listening to each other, and very seldom by following prejudices.

  4. Imagine - what have you done so far to promote peace in your own
    country?
    Not that much so far. I’m not a violent character, so personally I live quite peaceful with the people around me. But I am alarmed because the pressure of politicians and people against refugees is rising in Austria and in neighbouring countries as well.

  5. Imagine - what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own
    country
    I paritcipate at the peacecamp 2011 to get a better understanding and to promote peace in our country, in Hungary, in Palestina and Israel.
