These students’ fight for inclusive and quality education and a multicultural society without divisions is praiseworthy. They are carrying the message that young people are building bridges throughout the country and that their voices should be heard. On 1 June 2017, they were recognized by our group with the special recognition “Bridge for the Future– Most za buducnost – Le pont pour l'avenir“

“We strongly believe that the actions of the students in Jajce serve as an example for other citizens all over the country. We hope to see more bridge builders of this kind in BiH and will continue to recognize them in the spirit of the “Francophonie” which promotes dialogue and the universal values of peace, cooperation, solidarity and sustainable development.”, the ambassadors stated.
