Last three years our team members are involved in different kind of projects (national, regional and international) where we were using and where we are using creative activities and actions as tool.Through creative activities we are focused mostly on sport activities, fight against hate speech and human rights. We become so aware about this tool and we made Sector who is caring now for this kind of activities.

We strongly believe that the EU values has to be transmitted through different activities,mainly focused on young people and empowering them to build the Europe they will live in. BRAVO will be very happy to start it's activities in Erasmus+ working with the experience partners in the consortium and to bring the view of the young people from Western Balkans on their aspirations and motivations for a common European future. As one of the main priorities of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU in 2018, Western Balkans are part of the historical crossroads of intercultural dialogue between East and West,and in this regards, we want to work hard to promote the real educational connectivity in the region. In relation with the current project proposal,the team of BRAVO has implemented most of the creative campaigns in BIH in the last years and will be happy to share their experience.

In all our programs we are in direct connection with work on peace building,inclusion of minority youth, LGBTQI population, refugees from conflict areas, promotion of tolerance and fight against stereotypes and prejudices, as well as fight against hate speech.

Educating youth we try to raise their awareness about peace, tolerance, vulnerable groups and the meaning of informal learning. We are proud of the project which we implemented in our organization in the fight against human trafficking, Reproductive health and STD-s. From the beginning we encourage youth of BRAVO to attend all kind of workshops and we train them to teach other of values that are base of our societies. With this application and project we could extend our reach with youth. Education in this area very important for the Youth people in BIH especially after 4-years conflict in our country. Our organization has different kind of sectors where we puts SPORT as one important thing for volunteers and healthy lifestyle of volunteers and people from our society. BRAVO puts social impact of organization that aims to promote a lifelong enjoyment of sports, while emphasizing a positive consumer experience and instilling the core values of discipline, teamwork, safety, respect and integrity. BRAVO is in an effort to bring together volunteers who share interest in photography, IT and video production as a profession or a hobby and to enrich our learning experience by sharing our ideas, needs, and creativity and therefore enhancing our overall educational experience at the Erasmus+. BRAVO is here to offer volunteers the opportunity to work, create and expand their knowledge of photography outside of the working room and office.
