Utilizing various forms of media and communication — from panel discussions and personal narratives, to photography exhibitions and film — the weekend not only highlighted the heroic actions of those who acted on behalf of others in times of danger, but also the important role that youth can have in the dissemination of such important stories using the tools of media. Comprised of a wide range of educators, photographers, filmmakers, and students from across BiH, the greater Balkans region, and the world, the conference was a great success.
The diversity of student participants is highly notable. From within BiH, there were students from Sarajevo, Tuzla, Mostar, Bihać, Visoko, Kiseljak, Vareš, Bjeljina, Brčko, Banja Luka, Pale, Zvornik, Trebinje, Bosanska Gradiška, and Banovići. Regional students attended from Prilep, Macedonia, Belgrade, Serbia, Tirana, Albania, Zagreb, Croatia, Ljubljana, Slovenia, and Bijelo Polje, Montenegro, and international students were present from the USA, Scotland, England, Finland, Portugal, Tunisia, China, Rwanda, Denmark, Brunei Darussalam, Germany, and Greece.
