Youth Collaborating for Compassion:
An Online -Open Space Technology- Global Meet
Sep 11th & 12th 2022

How would you like to play and work with other young people (and those Young at Heart) like yourself from all over the world to make real change happen? To unleash the power of creativity and love in a world that desperately needs these today?

We are creating a special space! It is a place where you as a young person (aged 15 - 35), or one who is Young at Heart (YAHs) can meet and share about things you care deeply about, and are ready to take responsibility for. It is a space to express your calling, to create compassionate ways of living in harmony with oneself, with other people, and with nature.  Read more here...
