The round table and presentation of the research results and the Action Plan within the “Support Mechanism for Violence Prevention and SALW Risk Reduction” project, which under the auspices of UNICEF and
the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency has been implemented by a humanitarian organization Genesis Project, were held yesterday afternoon in Velika Kladusa.
The presentation, which was held by members of the research group, pupils Kenan Subasic and Elvedin Dzihanovic, was attended by representatives of the Velika Kladusa Municipality, Velika Kladusa Security Forum, Velika Kladusa SPIS Commission, representatives of the police and schools in this town, as well as young people who took part in the study.
Kenan and Elvedin are part of the research team of pupills, aged 15-19, who participated in workshops since September last year and interviewed their peers on topics of violence prevention and SALW risk reduction.
They presented the Action Plan, “Video surveillance leads to a safe environment”, which has a goal of purchasing and installing the video surveillance in the the First high school in Velika Kladusa.
Local coordinator, a pedagogue Eldina Goletić Keranovic, points out that pupils themselves have designed the Action Plan and found that installing the video surveillance would lead to a safer environment.
To implement this project UNICEF BiH will provide the 3,000 KM, and and at a round table there was a discussion about the possibility of co-financing, both by the Municipality, as well as by other donors.
The participants of the round table were also presented the one minute movies that pupils filmed within the project in Velika Kladusa, and which cover the problems of violence and risks of using weapons.
The “Support Mechanism for Violence Prevention and SALW Risk Reduction” project has been implemented from the first of July last year in six municipalities of Bosnia and Herzegovina and 16 Primary schools in the cooperation with relevant ministries and ends in June of this year.
