Peace Boat, Japan-based international non-governmental and non-profit organization came to Port of Gruz in Dubrovnik. They work to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment.
Peace Boat carries out its main activities through a chartered passenger ship that travels the world on peace voyages. The ship creates a neutral, mobile space and enables people to engage across borders in dialogue and mutual cooperation at sea and in the ports that they visit, as explained on their official page.
- In different ports, we have different programs with local people, because the Peace Boat is on the voyage around the world, during which we stop at 25 ports - said Mine Karaki, representative of Peace Boat for Dubrovacki Vjesnik.
She added that in Dubrovnik they visited Desa Association, where they met the widows from Homeland War and talked about women’s issues, but also cooked and tasted traditional cuisine.
