The Civil Society Pre‑Conference and the OSCE Chairmanship Conference on Tolerance and Diversity were held on October 19-20 in Berlin. Terraforming took an active part at the Pre-Conference for Civil Society, particularly at the Working group on Education for Tolerance and Diversity.
Using new-media technologies and graphic novel-style illustrations, supported by OSCE/ODIHR in the frames of the programme “Turning Words Into Action to Address Antisemitism” and leaning on the outcomes of the Historical Archives of Belgrade’s project “Escalating into Holocaust”, Terraforming gathered an international team to create educational materials based on personal stories of young victims from Belgrade, Nis and Zrenjanin murdered at the concentration camp at Sajmiste.

Terraforming (”Earth‐shaping”) is a term from astronomy, defining the theoretical process of deliberately modifying the atmosphere, temperature or topography of a new planet, to make it habitable by humans.
But before we start changing other planets, we believe that it is our World that needs to be “terraformed” first, making it a better place, with more empathy and love, with genuine respect for human rights, equality and freedom.
We are trying to give our small contribution to that kind of "terraforming" of our World.
