How are you? And how am I doing myself? Following the Slogan "Yes, we care!" we address our mental, spiritual, and physical well-being in the midst of the pandemic and beyond. In five different workshops, participants gain insights into different aspects of well-being. For example, the collective Radix invites you to self-care within political activism, the performer and movement artist Jessy Layne Tuddenham explores the relationship between mind and body, and staff from Mission 21 in Cameroon provide insights into their work with young people suffering from war trauma. In addition, the Youth Summit offers an international online meeting place for young people, with many opportunities for exchange and a concluding live concert.

Registration for the workshops will open at the end of May.
