The PEACE Programme or PEACE through Exchange and Active Citizenship Education is a secondary school trimester programme which aims at empowering and enabling young people to become active citizens. The participants stay with host-families and go to high school in a European country. At the end of the programme, all participants of the PEACE programme come to Belgium for a five day long camp with a focus on Active Global Citizenship in Europe.


Before returning to their home countries, the participants, who have been hosted in various European countries, meet for the PEACE Camp in Belgium. During the camp, participants get the chance to reflect on and share their experience with the others as well as to explore the concept of Active Global Citizenship in Europe. In addition, participants will spend one day in Brussels to explore the ‘capital of Europe’ and visit the EU institutions. The camp is organised by EFIL with the support of AFS volunteers from all over Europe.
