Each year, PCRC organizes a training for a group of young Bosnians from around the country. The five-day training camp consists of a series of interactive workshops and practical work sessions that focus on increasing participants’ understanding of the causes and manifestations of intolerance and discrimination between divided groups, the difference between freedom of expression and hate speech, the work of relevant authorities, and the role of citizen media in response.
Each year, PCRC runs a nation-wide competition that challenges Bosnian youth, ages 16 - 30, to uncover stories from their communities that relate to moral courage, rescuer behavior and interethnic cooperation. Winners and runners-up receive the opportunity to publish their stories on Balkan Diskurs.
