Who are we?

The Baltic International Center of Human Education - Cooperation for Peace is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation established in 1991, in Riga, Latvia. The Baltic Center works in three Baltic States: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in close cooperation with its sister-organisation PeaceQuest/Sweden.

What is our aim?

The Baltic Center believes it is important to work actively in all spheres in order to reach a positive and sustainable peace. A world embracing positive and sustainable peace can best be reached through co-operation in the realms of environment, human rights, democracy, security and international cooperation. The Baltic Center believes that this goal can best be achieved with education and information, mostly for young people.

What do we do?

The Baltic Center is currently working in these areas:

1. Environment
    Environment Committee projects are mostly school - oriented, aimed at education of secondary school students and teachers to increase public awareness about global and local environmental problems and their possible solutions. Recently, the Baltic Center started to work with Agenda 21, discussing its issues with students.
2. Human Rights
    The Baltic Center strives to create an awareness and understanding about the fundamentals of Human Rights. The Baltic Center with the Law Faculty of the Humboldt University of Berlin have started the training programme Baltic-German Exchange.
3. Peace & Security
    Peace & Security Committee is organising and participating in conferences, seminars, and study tours. The Baltic Center is co-founder of the Trans-Baltic Network - an NGO network for sustainable security.
Who are our members?

    The Baltic Center has approximately 300 members in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, organised into local groups called "Quest Clubs", currently active in Riga, Dobele, Ventspils and Liepaja in Latvia, Haapsalu, Tallinn, Tartu and Kadrina in Estonia, Vilnius, Kaisiadorys and Visaginas in Lithuania. Members of the Baltic Center mostly are university and high school students
How the Baltic Center is governed?

    The Baltic Center is governed by a Board of Directors, elected annually by the organisation's Annual Meeting, and supports three project committees for human rights, environment, and security, respectively.

This organization has not informed us if they are qualified under their local country tax law to receive tax deductible contributions.
