“All Together to stop violence against children” was the name of the DPAC celebration in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was organized by the GNRC Bosnia and Herzegovina and the “All Together” youth group of the Interreligious Council in B&H. The main topic of this year celebration was to Stop Violence against Children and the focus was on Promoting Positive Parenting.

On the 19th of November 2012, an important European Interfaith Celebration took place at the European Commission in Brussels.  The theme was “The right of children to water and to live in a world without violence“. This event took place in the framework of the “Water Campaign” launched by Religions for Peace Europe and the “World Day of Prayer and Action for Children”, which is celebrated every year in all continents on the occasion of the Anniversary of the Convention for the Rights of the Child.

Last August, the GNRC Europe participated in a training course on ‘Learning to Live Together’ organized by DANIB (‘For Democratic Azerbaijan’) and supported by the ‘Youth for Peace via Cultures’ project and ‘Youth in Action’ program, two initiatives created by the EU Commission.

The fifty participants in the workshop came from Macedonia, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia.They were Muslims, Catholics, Orthodox, and Protestants.  The Conference was organized by the European Law Students Association - ELSA, one of GNRC's partners and it was also supported by Save the Children, Norway, the Law Faculty of Sarajevo and the German Foundation IRZ.
