14 Days – 14 Ways Campaign
PeMNet is our network of Peer Mediators. Members engage as volunteers in intra- and inter-school conflicts and are advocates for peaceable schooling.
Between 2003 und 2008 Green Scenery trained hundreds of school teachers in environmental management and conflict resolution, educated thousands of children on environmental issues and human rights, introduced conflict resolution and transformation to hundreds of students. Peer Mediators engage as volunteers in intra-school and inter-school conflicts and are advocates for peaceable schooling.
Confronted with violent incidents between party youth through local government election, PeMNet came up with their “14 Days 14 Ways”-campaign with 14 strategies to demystify perceptions of political opponents and focus on common ground. Thousand students participated in Bo, Kenema, Makeni and Freetown in the campaign. The outcome was impressive: The election turned out to be none violent.
