Vision in Action: Join us as We Kick-off the Academic Year

Dear Ambassadors for Peace, Youth UPF members and friends,

EVENT: VISION WORKSHOP

Venue: 43 Lancaster Gate, W2 3NA

Date: Saturday, 29 September 2012

Time: 9.30 to 17.00

We hope that you are enjoying September so far.

Owing to plenty of interest from our previous works, to start this new academic year, the youth team of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) would like to invite you to a one-day kick-off workshop under the theme, Vision In Action . This workshop is geared to young adults ages 18-30 years old* who would like to know more about the background and work of the UPF, along with the vision of the newly formed youth department.

We seek to make the Youth UPF a bank of like-minded peacemakers who are willing to work together to tackle social and global issues. At the same time we are committed to support the personal development of our fellow members and hence, will incorporate education sessions throughout the year to help us tap into our potential.

There will be exercises to explore values-based leadership and peace principles in action. Following this we will give opportunities for our visionary members and Ambassadors for Peace to present their project proposals to inspire and encourage everyone to actively get involved.

Examples of issues our projects are focusing on are: Character Education, Euromed/ Arab Spring and North Korea.

Altogether, this will serve as a Youth UPF open-day so anyone curious for more details and/or who are interested to become members are most welcome to come. We also encourage older, more experienced Ambassadors for Peace who are willing to act as Advisors to our project teams, to come and join.

Please RSVP to youth.upf.uk@gmail.com or call Christa, Neil or Haesul. We hope to see you there!

Kind regards,

On Behalf of the Youth UPF Team
