YouthSpeak July 2008

Dear Readers of the Youthspeak,

the last month brought some new changes into the IHEYO network. As IHEYO was present with its 7th Annual event, related to the Humanist World Congress of IHEU in Washington D.C., we can proudly look back to a successful conference time with lots of new network connections to the American youngsters, but also to a stronger feeling of more involvement, of a bigger responsibility of each volunteer who belongs or wants to belong to IHEYO. Over the last time period IHEYO struggled with a volunteer gap and some further support from our own members. So it was time to start an open confrontation and a call for support. But nevertheless, Washington gave us again strength and self-confidence through our members and new networking contacts.

Herewith we will give you an overview about our sessions, our new cooperations with SSA from America and will introduce some nice stories throughout the world.

We hope to entertain you, we hope to encourage your own motivation to take part, we hope to open your mind for further communication and discussion.

In this sense, I wish you a nice reading.

Silvana Uhlrich, Communication officer IHEYO
