Dialogue, mutual respect and understanding, openness and transparency: these were the key words used by the participating students to present their proposals on how to overcome misunderstandings, stereotypes, bilateral problems - and geographic borders. Together, Macedonians and Greeks, ethnic Albanians and Serbs, Germans and Canadians discussed - often very intensely - what is to learn from the events 20 years ago, when courage and decisiveness brought down the Berlin Wall and ended the communist system. And they showed that, despite the differences in opinion today about the name issue, Kosovo or any other current challenges, the walls can be torn down, when talking and working together.
