Andre Kamenshikov, the founder of Nonviolence International Eastern Europe, talks about peacebuilding and the role of civil society in conflict zones. He describes how civil society is a great resource for peacebuilding. Civil society organizations can connect to the communities through humanitarian work, planning fun activities for the children, and cultural activities. This fits in with peacebuilding which seeks to create sustainable peace not only through political and economic activities but also through community bonding and building.
