The region of South-Eastern Europe is a ground where a lot of different cultures meet. This multiculturalism makes the relations between people of different cultures a mater of daily practice. The problems that have been prevailing in our society have forced people to good deeds and to blame others for the turmoil. This has been a major problem in the Balkan which has led people to completely separated entities, necessary and important contacts. As a result of leaving the problem behind, we have witnessed all these wars which in turn have worsened situation. For that reason this region is rated as the lowest in Balkan economy, respectively in the cultural and educational fields. In lack of other options, people easily resorted to armed conflicts as an option for solving the problems. As a part of Balkan and not being able to learn from the neighbouring experiences, Macedonia faced an open-armed conflict. Culture of violence became way of living that people started to accept as an everyday appearance. Addressing the issue of Peace in our society, this particular program is also trying to eliminate the existing culture of violence, especially in the schooling surroundings.
