Target Audience:
Young people of Mitrovica and music lovers everywhere.
This project had several implementation phases. The first was a 4 day-long training on “Concepts of Peace, Prevention, and Negotiation of Conflicts” led
by professional trainer Professor Fisnik Kumnova that included 15 young people of Albanian and Serbian heritage. The atmosphere at the training was friendly and cooperative. The second phase was a one day cultural tour around Kosovo to visit historic monuments, and the third involved recording a song named “Peace” in Serbian, Albanian, and English with youth from the rock school in Mitrovica. This school lent a lot of support for these young people in order to produce the song, which was an excellent example of the work that these young people did - and the work of all youth in Mitrovica. “Peace” was played on local radio stations such as Radio Mitrovica and Radio KFOR and also published on the YouTube and Facebook websites.

Lyrics of the song “Peace”:
We’re stuck in a cloudy day;
We’re looking for some freedom
To shine upon us like the sun.
We’re going to find a way,
Left or right,
We’re searching for that day.

Kemi ngecur në një kohë pa diell,
po kërkojmë liri.
Por ne do të gjejmë rrugën tonë,
në paqe dhe lumturi.

Заглављени смо у облачан дан;
и тражимо слободу
да сија над нама као сунце.
Ми ћемо да нађемо начин,
лево или десно,
у потрази смо за тај дан.


За Центарот за Заедничка Основа

The Centre for Common Ground (CCG as SFCG is known in Europe) has been working toward reconciliation, interethnic relations and stability in the Western Balkans since 1994, beginning with Macedonia and later expanding into Kosovo after war erupted there. Although inter-communal tensions never exploded into full civil strife as they did in Kosovo, Macedonia did balance on the verge of civil war in early 2001 and sharp divides still exists between ethnic Macedonians, Albanians, Turks and Roma.
