4. Ziv Keidar, 20/03/94, Carmel Zvulun

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
If we want to bring peace to our world we just need to listen each other and understand the message. If we won't listen and hear only what we want to hear so the communication between us to the world will fail.

Everybody thinks that all the people over the world are different, but they actually the same: we breath, we see, we want peace.

Since the peacecamp, I try to change people mind about the conflict between Israel and the Arabs countrys. Sometimes I success and sometimes I fail, but I don't give up.

I will keep try change people mind and I will continue believe peace and if someone will want to join me - I will know I done my mission.

I think that if people will care more about their environment and will know how to give up, we will have a more peaceful world.

What I have done to promote peace is going to peacecamp and talking to people who don't want peace.

I worked hard to make common workshops between Arabs students and Jews students to make opinions so close, therefore they accept each other.

Will, I dream to establish a bilingual school in Nazareth for both Arabs and Jews. Students at this school are encourages to speak and communicate with each other using both Arabic and Hebrew.

This school can give the chance to the students for expressing there feelings, opinions, and dreams…
I hope that this school will settle our conflicts. 

2. ANNE-SOPHIE ,23 .7.1993, Vienna, Wasagasse

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
I think everybody is able to bring more peace to our world. To respect and understand other people is therefore also very important.

I think the main obstacle is the history. Very much people are caught in a trap of their own prejudices und traditions.
3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
I try to be open in mind and to understand other positions. Sometimes they are different, but I think when you respect it you are able to change the world a little, little, little bit. But violence, prejudices and ostracism – I can not accept.
4. Imagine, what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
I’ll do the same I did till this day. I try to argue against extremism, racialism and intolerance. And I accept others and try to integrate people who are weak.

____________________________________________
3. FLORIAN, 20/04/1993, BG9 WASAGASSE 10
1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
Everyone should try to get away from prejudices and develop new opinions and world view. Although this seems hard, it’s better to make a small step rather then doing no step at all.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?
Rational thinking fundamentalists that are not willed to change their conservative perspectives. Basically, „positive conservatism“ is nothing bad. I mean, you should conserve the good and positive aspects and renew the bad and negative.
„Tradition is a lantern; the stupid one holds on it, to the wise it lights the path.“ - George Bernard Shaw

3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
I did participate in this year’s peacecamp and told all my friends about the huge success of it.

4. Imagine, what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
I think that i convinced a lot of young people that peace is not unreachable and that peace is important for everyone’s future.

_____________________________________________
4.O

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
I believe that understanding between nations and reduction of prejudices can bring peace to this world. Also, if there were more people who would care about peace and try it or further it in some way or another, together we could make a better world.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?
Greed, prejudice, fundamentalism, lack of knowledge in the population of a country that can be capitalized on by greedy politicians, as well as the indifference of those who are lucky enough to live in a peaceful country.

3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
I try to be open minded, in discussions I always take a stance for peace, I participated in this year’s peacecamp.
4. Imagine, what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
Although at the moment I do not see myself going in to politics, I do believe that I will use whatever power I will attain in the future to promote peace. At the moment, I will try to learn as much about peace as I can and take part in projects similar to the peacecamp.

5. lia,
22.10.1989, FH Campus Wien,

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
Actually I don’t know it. I think that there isn’t one thing we can do to bring peace into the world. We can only try meet “strangers” and talk to them. Like we do on the camps!
And of course more camps and projects like this.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?
The greedy people! Everybody just think about what is best for himself. Many people don’t care about others and what happens around them..

3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
I’ve been on different peacecamps, I talked and still talk to my friends about conflicts and problems….

4. Imagine, what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
I can just continue to do, what I do.
___________________________________________
6. Gregor, Birth Date 4.8.91, Your school Piaristeng., Bg 8

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
I think it is impossible and useless to try to bring peace to the whole world, but what we can do, and this is what I learned, is that you can bring peace to the people surrounding you, and that makes sense.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?
Actually, as I said, it is normal that we cannot be peaceful every minute, but I think that poverty and richness is one of the most important reasons for war.

3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
Every day, when I treat people I try to bring peace to them, of course, it's hard sometimes but not impossible at least to try.

4. Imagine, what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
The same I'm doing now, just to do my best, cause I can't do more than I am able to do.

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
People should find solutions for their problems and understand the other culuters, instead of fighting with each other.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?
The most people in our world are egocentric and they don’t care about the others, they don’t want to understand each other’s problmes.

3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
I had a Belgian exchange student and I’ve been in a lot of country to make international relation ships.

4. Imagine, what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
People should change the mentality about other people and about the world.
___________________________________________
2. BENCE 1992.05., SZENT LÁSZLÓ HIGH SCHOOL

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
The meeting of people from other cultures, the understanding of
each other, and maybe festivals, flashmobs can make people
be more understanding.
2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?
People take religions and politics too seriously. We want other people
to let us practice our religion freely, so we should let them as well.

The other is reason is the money.

3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
I talked about my thoughts at forums, and went to a lot of marchs.


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

3. ) Eszter, 12.1991, Szent László Gimnázium, Budapest

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
To make people understand that nobody is different from the others. And u cannot make difference about nations, complexion or appearance. You have to give everyone a chance.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?
People do not listen to each other.

3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
I had a Belgian exchange student and went to peace camp  peace camp was the most important. And I told about it almost everyone I know.

4. Imagine, what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
Participate in other international programmes.
____________________________________________
4. ) FRANCISKA , 1993.01.27, Szent László Gimnázium
1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
If people learned how to live peacefully together, tried to solve all their problems together, helped each other. If they learned how to make a world that’s safe and good for everyone.
2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?
That people don’t want to make sacrifices for a better, safer world. They don’t want to sacrifice their own needs (better say the things that they think they need) for a world where everyone is equal, and where everyone can get their personal needs, without hurting the other.
3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
I always try to be kind with everyone and help them. I try to solve our problems in a way that’s acceptable for everybody. I don’t think one person can change the world, but one can help another, and two can help two another, and so we can make a big peaceful community that we call world.
4. Imagine, what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
I can try to help everyone who needs my help. I can talk with people who don’t understand that there really are people who really need our help to be in safe. I really do believe that together we can change the world.
____________________________________________
5. ZSUZSANNA, 1992.04.01, Szent László Gimnázium

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?
I think if we knew more about the culture of other people or countires because then we wouldn’t believe in stereotypes. or if everybody knew one person from each country  but it’s almost impossible.
2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?
I think it’s the family or the friends that surround us. Because if for example the father thinks that something or somebody is really bad and he always talks about how much he hates them (for example the jews) then the kid will think the same and will tell this to their friends and maybe their friends will think the same.
3. Imagine, what have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?
I tried to convince people not to believe everything that they hear from somebody and not to say bad thing about people that they don’t know. So “not to judge a book by it’s appearance”
4. Imagine, what can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?
I still think that I am or we are not enough to change the world but if it was an obligation to participate in a camp like this for a lot of people then maybe we would be the majority and we could change the minds of the people about stereotypes and we could bring peace.

Everyone should try to get away from prejudices and develop new opinions and word views.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?

I do not take over prejudices easily. And I am participating in this year’s peacecamp...

7. JOMAN, 8.1993, NAZARETH

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?

Well, in my opinion I think that if we (human beings) can understand that we all brothers and there is no deference between us because we are the sons of Adam and Eve I'm sure that peace will come true , as well as, stop the hatred between the peoples and nationalities

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?

According to my opinion, I think that the main obstacles are: first of all, the hatred between peoples and nationalities. Secondly, the greed in the human material, besides the jealousy.

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

I worked hard to make common workshops between Arabs students and Jews students to make opinions so close, therefore they accept each other.


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

Will, I dream to establish a bilingual school in Nazareth for both Arabs and Jews. Students at this school are encourages to speak and communicate with each other using both Arabic and Hebrew.

8. ZSUZSANNA, 1992.04, Budapest

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?

I think if we wouldn’t like to change everybody then no one would have bad feelings about him or herself so then nobody would hate or don’t like each other and there wouldn’t be as much conflict in the world as now.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?

The attitude of the people because a lot of people thinks that the other person is a bad person because their body color is different from theirs but they don’t even know them and they just make an opinion that they don’t want to change.

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

I was trying to convince people not to make a bad opinion about anyone if they don’t know the person, because they might be wrong. (sometimes it worked but unfortunately for the most it wasn’t)

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

I think I’m not enough to do anything because we can’t change everybody’s opinion about this whole thing but I hope that later it will be better. 

10. RAJMUND , /06/1991, Budapest

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?

I think, that we should have no wars at all. Maybe the whole world could become one state. Also, we should rise our voices against racism.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?

People think that the human race has more “races”, this is not true, the human race is one race. Money is the only thing that controls the world. We rarely think fare away, we only take action, when it is needed to survive.

I nearly did nothing. I feel I am too young now.

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

11. FRANCISKA, 1993, Budapest_


1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?

If people wouldn’t be so self-centric and they would care about the others. I think everybody should find peace in their own mind. I mean, If people liked their lives, and they wouldn’t hurt others by their own injury. We often hurt people because we’ve been hurt before.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?

Envy, for example when a country want something (beach, or land) from another country, and they start a war. For a lot of people money is more important than the other person, and they do almost anything to get it. Jealousy can be another ostacle too.

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

In my class I’m trying to make the people (mainly the boys) get on well with each other. I don’t do big things, but I’m trying to keep peace in my own environment. I hate when I don’t get on well with somebody.

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

I’ll keep promoting peace in my environment. I’ll be there for people who need my help.

__________________________________________________________________________________________ 12. ÁBRAHÁM, 1992.05.Budapest

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to our world?

If people didn’t care so much about business and they didn’t believe in fictitious theories that make fight nations and religions against themselves, there wouldn’t be so much “war” in the everydays.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?

If little children see that politicians of the same country fight all the day, and that the government spends so much money to invent new weapons, as they grow up, they’ll have the same ambitions. Only parents and their social communities can change this.

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

I’ve been on protest marches, and I took part of the Peace Festival several times.

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

If I’m a popular person, I can change people by telling my theory, If I’m an artist or journalist, I can protest peace by my pieces or articles…It all depends on what are we doing in the world, but everyone can make steps.

__________________________________________________________________________________________ 17.Imry , 8.2.94 , Carmel Zvulun

1. Imagine, what can bring more peace to the world?

I think the most neccessary thing for world-wide peace ist hat people wont feel that they are higher or better than others just because they are from a different culture and a different religion. There has to be an understanding that all of the people are equivalent.

2. Imagine, what are the main obstacles to peace in our world?

I think the main obstacles these days are racism and some organizations that take the law to their hands and attack certain countries or minorities. There are also organizations who are financed from weapon selling and therefore they support wars.

I haven´t done many things so far to promote peace,becouse I haven´t given some thought to what I can do.

One day,my teacher said: " The metter must not rest there.Do someone have an idea how we can solve this problem?"
I raised my hand and said: "Yes.The boys should discuss on their own,how they can solve the problem."
No sooner said than done.
The boys spoke together and promised to each other to live in peace.

I think,that´s a good example,how we can promote peace.
