Description: 
Between the years 2000 and 2010, Permanent Peace Movement (PPM) worked in collaboration with the Ministry of the Displaced on the Druze-Christian relationship in several villages of Mount Lebanon where fierce armed conflicts took place during the civil war (e.g. Chouf, Aley and Baabda) under the title We?am, which roughly means concord and harmony. PPM carried out capacity building sessions targeting youth groups and focusing on dialogue, collaboration and non-violent conflict resolution. PPM launched various meeting centres/axis hosting Druze and Christian youth from villages across.
