The idea of this project

A concept of peace which relies on democracy, civil society, self-confident participation and courage asks for your attention in seven beautiful European cities. Peace-trails that you will find most worthwhile to walk get presented in Berlin, Budapest, Manchester, Paris, The Hague, Torino and Vienna. The website invites you to the experience and leads you to the different stations on the trails.

Interesting articles inform about peace movements, important events and meaningful peace institutions of past and contemporary significance.

All in all the trails promote a complex understanding of peace and generate reflections on a concept that presents itself as active engagement in civil society. The peace trails combine exploration of rather unknown parts of the city with acquiring knowledge about relevant dynamic aspects of democratic societies. Buildings and locations gain new meanings. The aim of this project Discover Peace in Europe is to create stronger awareness of the importance of critical participation and of the relevance of civil rights movements.
