For the second part of GO GREEN europeantraining about Sport and Sustainable development, the participants travelled to Tbilissi in Georgia.
City of contrasts, Tbilissi is a meeting point between eastern and western civilizations.
Tbilissi’s history is a story of repeated invasions and wars.
The collapse of the soviet unions re-ignited many centuries old ethnic disputes in the South Caucasus area.
In Georgia several violent conflicts between 1992 and 2008 led to the loss of Tbilissi’s control over the regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, whose local authorities declared those territories ” independant republics”
Participants of GO GREEN have been very happy to visit the centre for cultural relations ” CAUCASIAN HOUSE”
The program for Peace and Integration started a dialogue for peace cooperation 3 years ago by implementing 7 meetings and academic work to make proposals to resolve problems.
