BOOTCAMP MEDELLIN 2018: CREATING POSITIVE & COLORFUL CHANGE TOGETHER!

This year, MasterPeace chose Medellin,  ‘the city of eternal spring’, to host the activities of its 7th edition of MasterPeace Bootcamp, where MasterPeace Club leaders from around the world come to meet and exchange ideas, plans and inspiration.

Medellín was everything we dreamt of and more: the city was a mix of culture, creativity and peace-building! It made headlines  during the past few years for its transformational story, growing from the world’s most dangerous city to an award-winning example of positivity, creativity and innovation.

From small alleys to big conference rooms, passing walls of hope and art, we completed an amazing journey of five days as one team. We went through all the uphills and deep valleys of what this city and its experts had to offer.

This was the first time this global event was held in South America, the annual Bootcamp represents a great exchange opportunity for MasterPeace Club leaders from around the world. The event focused on the exchange of experiences, interactive workshops, opportunities for dialogue, as well as dynamic and creative sessions with local and international partners.

The Bootcamp hosted almost  30 international leaders from 22 countries, such as Uganda, Germany, India, Poland, Romani, Mexico among many others. The Bootcamp was an opportunity to share their experiences with Medellin leaders who have been trying for years to offer children and young people in vulnerable neighborhoods of the city an alternative to avoid violence.

According to Dur Montoya, Co-Founder of MasterPeace Medellín and all the team in Colombia, the partnering companies had awaited the leaders with a great welcome, and everything was ready for this meeting!
