Geneva in January: Peace First's International Journey
"This generation is hungry to make a difference; they're ready to make a difference; we just need to invest in their ability to make a difference."
-Eric Dawson at the IFRC Design Session
We were in Geneva, Switzerland working with the IFRC to explore how we can better engage the global youth population in solving community issues.
People from over a dozen countries joined us, sharing their unique experience and expertise to ensure any work we do can reach across borders and culture.
Check out some of the social media posts from throughout the session:
How can we shift the narrative of how the world perceives #young people and what they're capable of? We're working with @PeaceFirstOrg to make that happen. @EricDawson explains. pic.twitter.com/XjQ8bodpib
