THE WORLD NETWORK CONCEPT
prerequisite for a better future of the world

Inspired by the recent hard history of Dubrovnik and Croatia, the development of a unique virtual creation "The World Network™" was initiated, in which all visitors are invited to participate and make their contribution showing that peace can be realized after all. With the print of your palm and the selected messages for a better future of the world, each visitor of Visia Dubrovnik creates his own part of the World Network and can send online postard as a reminder of his noble deed.

The World Network concept started on 9 May 2010, on European Day when pupils from Dubrovnik primary schools spreaded out a 292-meters long and 5-meters wide World Network made of canvas and ropes with messages for peace accross the Stradun. The images of Dubrovnik painted in colours and messages for peace were shown all around the world.

This creation shows that respecting differences is deeply rooted in all of us and that peace and tolerance are a prerequisite for a better future of the world.
