When and where?
Brussels’ area, from the 1st to 8th of April, 2017.
Many events have been altering the stability in the region in the last years and originated conflicts. Rotary is a catalyst of peace values and wishes to create an occasion for Rotaractors interested in International Relations and Diplomacy to discuss about Peace in the Mediterranean Sea.
This first active training event aims to provide peace values building related skills and networking. We wish to launch a future tradition on Peace related training meetings on periodical basis.
