Tolerance - The Key to Reconciliation and Prosperity

Malmö 2019 - 15th National Session of EYP Sweden will take place between the 15th and 18th of March 2019 and gather approximately 150 participants. Officials are expected to arrive at the session on the 14th of March for CJOJ-Training. 

"Tolerance - The Key to Reconciliation and Prosperity"

“Tolerance refers to a great variety of aspects in regards to human interaction and the society. It encompasses people’s willingness to cooperate, ability to accept, and commitment to the greater good. Merely in a tolerant society can people and communities reconcile and prosper. However today, we can unfortunately see that tolerance is on the decline. Evident not least through the rising euroscepticism, alienation of minority groups, and devastating conflicts in the world, it is possible to identify the current lack of tolerance in the world. This has to change. Malmö 2019 - 15th National Session of EYP Sweden, will be a force directed towards making that change; towards bringing the tolerance back into society, and into the minds of people. Therefore, we will gather in Malmö under the vision “Tolerance - The Key to Reconciliation and Prosperity”. We would like to see you there, shining with your presence!”

EYP is known for creating unexpected friendships among people coming from all over Europe. This project provides some examples of everlasting friendships between officials that met in previous sessions. We hope that Malmö 2019 will represent the starting point of many other friendships as well.

This photography project was inspired by the Climate Strike that took place all over the world on the 15th March. It aims to showcase the thoughts and concerns of participants of the session regarding the issue, and is dedicated to all students striking for climate justice.

This initiative, taken by students worldwide, was a powerful display of the youth's active involvement in politics and exemplified how a collective voice of a generation can become a strong force of positive change.
