YOUTH, PEACE AND SECURITY”
12-18 August 2019, Oslo Norway
Did you know that only few days ago, 4 of our most active volunteers at the YMCA Thessaloniki participated at YWCA-YMCA Global’s summer leadership training course?
The theme for Global Week 2019 was Youth, Peace and Security. Maybe you think that its only political leaders who can change the world? Or that only staff in a big organization can run campaigns.
That’s of course not true!
It might sound like a cliché, but it starts with you ?
This year, our volunteers had the opportunity to talk about what they can do to make the world a better place, both for those around us and for young people in other countries.
They learned how to develop a campaign, how to get young people involved and how they can use music or social media to work for a more just world.
Around 50 young people gather in Norway for a week of discussions, learning, action and exciting meetings.
With participants from 17 countries, Global Week was really a place to get a feeling of how small the world is.
Besides, when young people from different parts of the world come together and get to know each other, we get a better understanding of how the world works and how, together, we can work for justice and peace.
Thank you Kleopatra Stamati, Stefanos Arvanitakis, Γιώργος Σωσσίδης & Μέλπω Τακοπούλου for your active participation!
Your excitement, passion and enthusiasm can be the driving force that can help us make the world a slightly better place!
