MCC Hostel also part of the Sleep for peace campaign

09/26/2017

MCC Hostel also joined this year's Hostelling International "Sleep for Peace" campaign, which took place between September 21st (International Peace Day) and September 27th (World Tourism Day). The goal of the campaign is to make people aware of the importance of PEACE. To live in peace and with it presents a great challenge for every day man. In this "crazy" everyday life and the pace of life, it is difficult to maintain inner peace and avoid conflicts. By joining the international campaign, we want to encourage the general public to understand the importance of peace, and that in the interests of peace and conflict prevention, it is also necessary to understand the needs of people who surround us and not only our own.

Hostelling International seeks to establish a Youth Hosts network where people feel safe and desirable. A quiet sleep brings to each one a nice morning, because we are well aware of how tough the mornings can be after a sleepless night. Everyday obligations can be much more demanding if we are not rested and sleepy, which in turn leads to internal unrest, and to conflicts. In countries where conflicts or wars take place, they are well aware of the importance of peace; in countries far from conflict areas, we do not devote enough attention to peace and take it as something self-evident. But in the desire to maintain peace and the culture of dialogue, one should be aware that every step towards maintaining peace and spreading the culture of peace is invaluable, as history teaches that conflict or war unforeseen proportions can develop from even the slightest resentment or misunderstanding.

At the Slovene Travel Association, they decided on a project that will be carried out in 15 Youth Hostels as follows:

  • Youth Hostel Pekarna - Maribor
  • Youth Hostel Pod Voglom - Bohinj
  • Youth Hostel Marenberg - Radlje ob Dravi
  • Youth Hostel Tresor - Ljubljana
  • Youth Hostel Bovec
  • Youth Hostel Histria - Koper
  • Youth Hostel Portorož
  • Youth Hostel Brežice
  • Youth Hostel Murska Sobota
  • Youth Hostel PUNKL - Ravne na Koroškem
  • Youth Hostel Debeli Rtič - Ankaran
  • Youth Hostel Celje
  • Youth Hostel Murska Sobota
  • Youth Hostel Vila Veselova
  • Youth Hostel Slovenj Gradec

The aim of the project is to involve as many young people as possible, to teach them the importance of the PEACE and to encourage them to contribute to a better world situation in the future with their good will and positive thinking. In hostels, travelers, employees and people from the local environment will be able to participate in various peace-keeping activities and programs. At the same time, they will have the opportunity to share their views and opinions with others. The snow white sheets, which are the basis of each hostel, will hang on the premises of our hostel and attract people to write them with interesting thoughts "HOW DO YOU CONTRIBUTE TO WORLD'S PEACE?" And opinions on how to improve the world.
