It was a long, inspiring weekend we had at the Media Workshop in Basel and Zurich, hosted by UNYA Switzerland in November 2011. This inspiration did not end with after the official program in the afternoon was over. Discovering Basel in the night together, sharing ideas and looking back at the last view days, some participants were so motivated to express their motivation and feelings on a chalkboard. See for yourself!
Dear Members and Friends of UNYANET,
A very successful year for international young volunteers has come to an end. After several months of development and discussions, representatives from 11 associations met August 2011 in Vienna to establish UNYANET. Since then, all at this event established working groups are planning several projects. Regular online meetings were organised to share news and knowledge among the member associations and together with UNYA-Switzerland, UNYANET has successfully held its first event, a Media Worshop in November. Furthermore we managed to get some stong partners; Besides UNIS Geneva and UNIS Vienna, Adobe is supporting UNYANET with a conference server and we are in close contact with other supporters for the upcoming projects.
For 2012, we are planing quite a lot of smaller and bigger projects and the YPCS/GA 2012 has to be planed as well. Information will be published as soon as they are available. Meanwhile, we wish all of you a good start into the new year.
Daniel & Michael
