The Balkans Peace Parks Project (B3P)
The Balkans Peace Parks Project (B3P) envisaged a cross-border park in a rugged mountainous region spanning Albania, Montenegro and Kosovo as a symbol of peace and cooperation where communities from all three countries work together to protect their fragile environment, stimulate local employment and promote sustainable visitor activities in the region.
B3P is a grassroots network bringing together a diverse selection of people: academics, artists, environmental activists both in the Balkans around the globe, and of course local people living and working in the valleys and villages of Northern Albania, Montenegro and Kosovo.
The articles in this collection have been written by those involved with the project as members of B3P, researchers, volunteers and interns working with B3P.
More information about the charity, and volunteering is available from the Balkans Peace Park Project website.
