Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

Europe is in a terrible process of erosion. As a women’s peace organisation with a long tradition in the analyses of root causes of war and expertise in conflict prevention, we hear the alarm clocks ringing announcing new violence and exclusion. We want to organize a «summer school»,focus onwomen and women’s groups together with our eastern partners. We will bring young people together to discuss best practices and possibilities for constructive actions for a transformative process to peace.

Where will your idea take place?

Budapest, Hungary

Why does Europe need your idea?

Eroding Europe through the creation of new walls and fences, creating misunderstandings, exclusion and new violences. Critical gender approach across borders towards the dominance of an economic mainstream which does not service the needs of the people but those of profit and priviledges.

What is your impact?

better understanding of root causes of conflicts and strengthening of commmon activities to jump across fences and unite in solidarity.

How do you get there?

Young WILPF activists will make their own agenda and comunicate through facebook about their needs and mutual understanding

What is your story?


Who are you doing it for?

WILPF in Europe is a political pan-european lobbygroup for conflict prevention and peaceful methods and strategies for conflict solution

What makes your idea stand apart?

We have an intergenerational approach with a past of 100 years of women making peace and hopefully a future who makes progress in the perspective of a more peaceful world and a cohesive Europe against growing violence, exclusive patriotism and fascist tendencies.
