With the team effort of a diverse group of young people, this exhibit aims to show young people´s view of peace, conflict and violence through their creative pieces and works.
360º Peace in Media aims to provide young people with a deeper understanding of the relationship between media and peace-building and explore peace journalism vs. war journalism in the context of armed conflict.
