An incredible opportunity for young leaders to explore promoting social inclusion and diversity

An incredible opportunity with the british council!

I have been selected for the Imagine Peace Youth Camp 2017 which will be held in Athens, Greece. The camp is geared towards young leaders who are dedicated to help reduce inequalities and social exclusion through sport. Fifty participants from more than fifteen countries will come together for one week from 17th August to 2nd September 2017 to take part in a series of educational workshops and sports activities that aim to promote equality and peace, and explore the role of sport in the peaceful resolution of conflict. The Imagine Peace Youth Camp will be held at the facilities of the International Olympic Academy where the Olympic Games and philosophy of life of Olympism was born and developed.

I'm raising a minimum of £1100 to cover the €500 camp fee cost which covers food, accommodation and transportation within Greece and £600 for the return flights from London to Athens.

a bit about me..

I'm currently in my second year of the University of Essex and I am dedicated to trying to help people. I volunteered in Senegal for three months in 2015 and have represented the UK in 2016 in the J7 Summit in Japan where we discussed climate issues and worked together to formulate a final paper which was presented to the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe. Since then, I have been volunteering at Colchester Hospital in my spare time and am soon going to be volunteering with Community 360.

my story

The opportunity to participate in the Imagine Peace Youth Camp is important to me because it would take me one step closer to fulfilling a passion of mine in discussing crucial issues in society and meeting other leaders passionate about reducing inequality, enabling us to collate our ideas and incorporate our variety of backgrounds and experience.

My minimum target is £1100
