On January 26th 2020 took place YSP Switzerland's first activity of the year, mainly for the committee to plan the successful and exciting year to come.
This first Meeting of the year was held in order to organize our new year 2020. We started inspired and set ambitious goals and dreams, listing different activities we would like to organize, as well as redo some of last year. We could also restructure our committee with regional leaders in charge each of one of the five regions in Switzerland: Zurich Region, Bern R., Geneva R., Vaud R., Fribourg Region. Our goal is to expand to Ticino Canton as well, which we were not able to do last year as we could not find anyone there who would want to take that responsibility. This new structure of our committee will allow us work more interdependently and share the work and responsibilities better.
Furthermore, the ten points below were discussed during the meeting (for more information, please contact Mélanie Komagata):
- Peace Projects: readjust and specify activities for the two projects:
“We Care” & “Pick up your trash”
- Committee restructure
- Social Media
- T-shirt YSP
- Reach out
- Collaboration with UPF and WFWPU: Int’l UN Days; Ambassadors for Peace
- Fun activities that can be organized in parallel to our YSP activities
- Workshop & education
- Summer camp
- Collaboration with other YSP nations: Senegal volunteer project
We are excited and inspired for the year to come, to realize even greater and more impactful events and activities, to grow and better our ourselves, our world and the environment around us!
