Memories of the days spent in Prague during the Festival are still in our minds. Hopefully they will stay for a long time and we will continue being inspired by the huge potential that such an event provides to each individual… and to each of our YMCAs.
As shared at the closing night, the Festival did not finish on August 10th. It goes on and it will continue inspiring us and many others that did not have the chance of being in Prague.
YMCA Europe´s Festival “LOVE 2 LIVE” had its closing ceremony last Friday August 9th. The participants agreed to spread the unique experience that they had lived in Prague among their YMCA members and friends. The stories that they have lived in Prague will reach thousands more when they return home.
Looking back, we have shared a unique event this week. With workshops on climate justice, handicrafts, case studies of Hong Kong and other YMCA’s, Ymicro.org (a tool for global engagement and youth empowerment), mini-Olympics, how to start a TEN SING group and so much more. With gigantic storm proof tree houses. With many opportunities to worship God. With 2300 gaga ball games, 6000 young, enthusiastic people from 62 countries and also tons of fun!
