Global Youth Rising – International Youth Peace Forum 2016

Two member of the HPP staff joined the Global Youth Rising 2016 in Romania, 10 days of intensive trainings, discussions, workshops and practical strategic planning with organisations, activists, trainers and practitioners from all over the world working in the field of peacebuilding, conflict transformation, youth participation and empowerment and much, much more.

Besides all the stories that have been told, all the lessons learned and experiences shared, the  participants also joined or stared concrete actions. For example a video clip they made in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement , a video for 1 billion Rising, and statements in reaction to the terrorist attack in Nice.

One of the activities during the forum was the Living Library, a tool for stimulating storytelling, dialogue and connection, which inspired Nadine and Lisanne to organise such an event in The Netherlands as well. Curious about what is a Living Library? Join our session on the 21st of September!
