Our Seventieth Youth Festival – What Does it Mean?
Guest Editorial by D. E. (Jim) Popoff
The Union of Youth Council is pleased to start focusing completely on our Union of Youth Festival now, and we would like to remind everyone between the ages of 16 and 30 that our door is always open and we meet Wednesdays at 6:00 pm. As a smaller council this year we would love to see some new faces and we would really appreciate the extra help! If anyone is interested feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information.
Come meet a Peace Team member who worked with Nonviolent Peaceforce in South Sudan and people working in BC and around the world. Hear stories and see videos of nonviolent approaches to prevent political, community and gender-based violence. The UN calls this work Unarmed Civilian Protection, complementary to blue helmet Peacekeepers.
