Regarding preparation for Peace Camp 2009, my friends and i involved in Peace Generation community held a special camp for new peace generation members who joined the latest peace camp on last January. The activity took place at, Wisma Srikandi, Kaliurang, Yogyakarta for 3 days (Friday-Sunday, November 21-23, 2008). About 30 members who joined in SCP (Student Camp for Peace 2002), PION (Peace In Our Neighborhood 2005), PIOS (feeling Peace In Our School 2007), and JPAR (Jogja Peace Amazing Race 2008) came to the camp. And I was the chairman of the camp. Not the real chairman actually, coz everyone fully helped me and had a particular role. Thx friends … 🙂
Those three days contented several activities like lecturing, game, bla bla bla. We learnt much about conflict management, conflict characteristics, the way how to facilitate people in a particular group discussion, and how to organize Peace Camp 2009. All those materials we delivered to JPAR and PIOS members. On the last day, we talked much about Peace Generation itself as a social community. It was a good talk how to maintain a non-profit community. It was difficult, mate! Coz this event was actually held for regenerating the community which had no salary.
But yeah…we tried to empower this community and the new members had to remember that we grew together until now because of togetherness, smiling, crying, and laughing. Then, Go Peace Generation 🙂 !! Big Amen.
