In Lebanon, peace organisation PAX works with local partners in projects focussed on human rights, conflict resolution and initiatives to mobilize young people for peace and peaceful direct action. Our partners lobby the Lebanese government to change laws and to respect human rights and activate young people for culture and peaceful activism. For instance: We call on them to repeal legislation on different religious groups and to give Palestinian refugees more rights. On a grassroots level we work to build capacities of local young people from different backgrounds to use culture as a means to deal with violence, war and hatred.
