1 July 2010

The UNANIMA International youth workshop is almost a month past and Jessica and Catherine are working to leverage the interest and enthusiasm generated by the session into a more permanent global youth movement. We have contacted two young persons from each region covered by the workshop to ask them to serve as regional consultants to help build such a movement.


Phase 2 of Stop the Demand Campaign – Youth Workshop

1 June 2010

As this month’s updates are being prepared, Catherine, Jessica and Angela are in the second day of the workshop to plan the youth phase of our STOP THE DEMAND campaign. So far, the participants have experienced a three-day orientation session to the United Nations prepared by Lucianne Siers, OP, of the Global Partnership for Justice, and have seen as much of New York City as they can squeeze into their free time. Since we are only halfway through the workshop, we will report back on the results in more detail later.

UNANIMA International announces the 32 participants in the Youth Workshop, 28-30 May 2010.
