“Building and crossing bridges” will serve as a metaphor throughout the Short Course.
The aim is to gather young people from diverse backgrounds in order to build one united community where can teenagers empower each other. They will be encouraged to challenge themselves through workshops, physical and psychological activities,social experiments, debates, theatre and games.
Acknowledging and understanding why we are so different often leads to more constructive outcomes in our rapidly changing, diverse world. With this in mind we emphasise empathetic communication and listening when becoming part of this powerful network of like-minded, young change makers, who stay in touch and work together to improve their societies.
