Meet Ronny Böhmer, Administrator4peace


Hi, my name is Ronny. The photograph shows me last summer in Norway, enjoying the „midnight sun“. I am Evelyn's husband, and while she is the mastermind behind the peacecamp project, I am rather the allrounder and troubleshooter taking care of all the organisational details entailed with such an event. I will be at the camp on and off, commuting between Vienna and Lackenhof. I was born in Argentina and am living in Vienna (with interruptions) since my childhood. I have two grown-up daughters and (so far) one grandson. I am looking forward to be with you all at peacecamp no. 16! See you there ...
