Welcome to Another World!
IFM Camp in Bavaria, Germany 23.7-5.8.16
80 young activists from our four educational movements spent two weeks together to put the slogan into action.
From 23rd of July to 5th of August all concerned movements of the educational project of WBC sent delegations to an international youth camp in Germany. Out of more than 2500 young people the four movements came up with around 20 participants each so the region was represented by a group of nearly 80 young activists. Preparation seminars beforehand ensured a great time the movements spent together. Three out of eight theme tents (Peace, Socialism and LGBT) were run by members of the movements from Israel and Palestine. Not only in the theme tents which hosted a great number workshops, seminars and discussion rounds but also aside the movement’s meat for various encounters to get in touch with – and learn from each other.
The four organizations lived together in one part of the campsite. Since the name of this space was Peace-Camp the motto of the camp was taken very serious: Welcome to Another World! With some great experiences all the participants arrived safely back home. The momentum, though, the shared existence in the camp created keeps on taking effect. Or as one of the participants phrased it: “it’s a tailwind for the work for peace on the ground and all future cooperation.”
