Meet Annika Tapler, Austrian delegation

Hello, my name is Annika and I'm fourteen years old. I live in Vienna and I also go here to school. I like singing and generally music. I'm singing in my school choir for five years and I love it to be there. In my leisure time I'm reading books, meeting friends or being just at home and lazy. (: I'd like to make new experiences and I think, the peacecamp is the right thing! I hope I'll meet some people and will have contact also after the peacecamp. I'm looking forward to meeting you all. (:

Meet Ilan Baruch, workshop talks4peace

Dear Peace campers,
My name is Ilan. Born in Jerusalem 65 years ago, I am a Grandfather, but young at heart and very happy with the opportunity to meet you all in July.
My profession is old fashioned – diplomacy, but my interest in it took me way beyond my past official career as an Israeli Ambassador to several countries, to become a peace activist at present. I am involved in a number of projects which are all geared to generate public support for a viable, just and lasting peace in the Middle East, between states and between people. In our conversations during the peace camp, I hope to exchange with you thoughts and ideas concerning conflict, peace, conflict resolution and peace making.

Meet Clara Reininger, Coordinator of the Austrian Delegation and Assistant to the Large Group

My name is Clara Reininger. I am the project coordinator and direct contact person for the Austrian participants of Peacecamp 2014.

I am a psychologist with an emphasis in clinical and health psychology, as well as, a certified pedagogue in the fields of Music and German.

My last occupational position has been at the Vienna General Hospital in the Department of obstetrics and feto-maternal medicine. Furthermore, I have been working as an external lecturer at the Sigmund Freud University Vienna, giving lecture and exercise in Clinical Psychology I and II. This coming fall I will counsel teachers, students and their parents at special education centers. My main working fields are interculturality, the prevention of violence and crisis intervention.

I especially enjoy spending time with my son Jakob who is three years old. Our most favorite activities involve painting, singing, playing instruments, and dancing together. We also enjoy reading adventurous stories and often create stories of our own.

I am looking forward to getting to know you at Peacecamp 2014, particularly to explore with you the diversity of life concepts, discover their common and different aspects, and learn how we can mutually respect each other. :-)
