Momentum Latvia: Youth Conference, 25th June-1st July 2018
“Be the change you wish to see in the world” is the main inspiration for our international youth conference that will be held at the Adazi Free Waldorf School from June 25th to July 1st.
The purpose of the conference is to bring together young people, aged 18 to 35, from different countries, experiences, and with different life stories to talk about contemporary society and the role of the individual in it.
What is happening in the world? What are the tasks of our civilization? How can we influence the events currently unfolding in the world? Should we change anything? How can we recognize our potential in the puzzle of the world?
We will disentangle these and many other issues with inspirational and experienced mentors from United States, Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Latvia.
- Who am I?
The question to which many people are still unable to answer. Many are looking for an answer to this question all their lives. It is possible to think about this subject for a long time, however, in today’s fast-paced world, decisions must be made quickly. But how do you know the right direction to go, if you do not know who you are and where you are going?
- What is society? Do I need to change something?
This is the second most important topic for the conference. We will come together and look for answers, to understand what’s happening in today’s world. Why are relationships between people in modern society so impersonal and selfish? Why is it that we have hundreds of friends in social media, but we are lonely and are often unfulfilled? What are the tasks of our civilization? Can this system of societies, which has evolved for thousands of years, be changed and should it change for you? How critical is my role in a complex society?
This conference is organized for young people who have a lot of questions about themselves and the world in which we live. The idea of the conference is to help answer the questions that cannot be answered by oneself.
Speakers will include Orland bishop, Jannis m. Keuerleber and Rebekka Kreisel.
