„YMCA Europe is a working fellowship to strengthen movements where people grow in body, mind and spirit.“


4th December 2019

Just a few more days to go before we initiate what's going to be the last activity within current 2016 - 2019 phase of Roots - Reflecting on Peace Practices Workshop in Brussels, Belgium on December 08 - 12, 2019.

These will be the days of highlights with showcase of Roots "Peacework Guidebook" that reflects the outstanding legacy of the project; the visit to European Parliament should be an inspiration towards common efforts of making Europe a safe and shared home for all of us; and joint reflection upon YMCA Europe next Strategic Plan - the best way to give the feeling of ownership for the document that first of all must feature the needs and aspirations of people that it serves.

And it will be in Brussels where we'll share the good news - the Roots goes on! Yes, another 3 years of making difference in the lives of thousand of young people that we plan to do together with you!

And is there a better way to do it than with Donors from Bread for the World; top-level representation from the World YMCA, European, African & Latin American Alliances; YMCA Partners ranging from Ireland to Artsakh; External Experts that have done tremendous job in project assessment and making the Guidebook... That is together with everyone that played vital role for why the Roots is a huge success story... to be continued!
