Mission and Aims

Our Mission

At Local Peace, our mission is to empower individuals to become active agents in promoting peace and combating intolerance. Through local and international educational activities focused on peace, human rights education, and capacity-building, we equip our community with the tools to challenge hate speech and prejudice. Our project, 'Labels are for goods, not for people,' is a key initiative under Local Peace, aiming to dismantle stereotypes and foster inclusivity within our society. With the invaluable support of UNMIK, this project becomes possible, enabling us to make strides toward a more harmonious world.
