Live Music (Karaoke) as a Platform for Youth in Baalbeck-Hermel to Meet

As part of “The Academy of Conflict Resolution”, a peace building-oriented project implemented by the Lebanese organization of Studies and Training and funded by Canada Fund, 120 youth from Baalbeck-Hermel region organized a Live Music Day (Karaoke) at Baytna Restaurant in Baalbeck.
After training 120 youth from conflicting communities in Baalbeck-Hermel region on conflict resolution techniques, LOST organized the event and got the targeted youth from Baalbeck, Hermel, Ein, and Bedneyel-Shmustar to participate. Youth were encouraged to sing patriotic songs and their main slogan in the event was “We Want to Live Together”.

The activity aims at helping youth bridge all differences based on sectarian and political divisions through recreational activities, thus creating a safe and independent space where they can interact freely and proactively in a tension-free environment. LOST employs this methodology of linking activities to training content to provide a practical model of activating youth in order to facilitate reconciliation.
