37 students and 13 teachers coming from Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Estonia and Scotland participated in a regional Youth Camp organized in Serbia in August 2009. During five days, students aimed at answering the question "Why do we need international humanitarian law". Various workshops sensitized the participants on several core concepts of IHL through creative exercises, drawings and performances.
During the Solferino Youth Camp in June 2009, 42 young people, representing 23 National Societies, participated in a workshop based on the Exploring Humanitarian Law programme. During five hours, they came to grisp with basic concepts of international humanitarian law, using creative and interactive techniques and drawing on their own experiences and knowledge. At the end of the workshop, they created a non-verbal drama to illustrate what they had learned. "This workshop was totally different from anything else I attended during the week", said Eero Rämö, from the Finnish Red Cross.
