  • Volunteer?? YES, thank you!!

    Wednesday 27 August 2014

    My name is Jasmin Gavranović. I'm 24, and I started volunteering 5 years ago. At first I volunteered out of boredom and curiosity, but when I started meeting new people, where I learned to accept other opinions, learned the skills of nonviolent communication and teamwork, then I realized that volunteering provides an opportunity to belong somewhere and find your place in the world, but and to help other people. Because I think that in life we have to give ourselves, and not just look for something from others.

    My first days of volunteerism are related to Tuzla Community Foundation ...

I came to zurich 48 hours ago and I changed my mind, thanking to the game session of yesterday night, when few of us started to know each other with simple but funny activities.

  • Zurich Forum, time for opportunities

    Wednesday 06 August 2014

    Dear all!

    My name is Ieva and I`m working in Latvian Athletics association. I started my practice in the association while I was studying Communication Science in Latvian University. From that time, I`m connected with athletics 24/7. Before that I was involved in track and field partly as an athlete.

    Now I`m going to the Young Leaders Forum and I`ve been waiting this moment for all my summer. It was the European Athletics Convention in Tallinn when I first time heard about this Forum. From then I realized I would like to be a part ...

    Saturday 02 August 2014

    Hello Everyone!

    My name is Blanka Kívés, I am one of the participants of this year’s European Athletics-UNESCO Young Leaders Forum in Zürich.

    This is a great opportunity for me to hear and learn new thoughts, theories, to meet new people with the same interests as I have, to be listened and to be appriciated in an international sport-related community.

    I applied for this possibility in March and was overjoyed to hear the very best news of my year - that I will be the one, representing Hungary in the Forum. I am honored that I could get this chance ...
