Sample Workshop for older youth...

Sample WHR Workshop: 2011 July:

Below excerpt and link is to full report where a World Harmony Run team recently presented a workshop in Hartford, CT, USA. This second stage of participation in the events in Hartford was at the World Youth Peace Summit (WYPS) on Sunday 03 July.

We had the honor of presenting a workshop to knowledgeable and curious teens and older youth.

Many of the participants had also taken part in the World Scholar-Athlete Games (WSAG) which began a week earlier also in Hartford, Connecticut.

That previous Sunday 26 June, some of our team had been part of  the Opening Ceremony for the WSAG (see Report and Photos here). 

The Rhode Island based WYPS organization hosted workshops, panels and keynote speeches for athletes, scholars and artists..

Today's WYPS Participants:

Most of today's group had seen the more general World Harmony Inspirations Video or something similar and the presentation in the opening WSAG ceremony.

We were fortunate to be met by many smiling faces in the audience who had consciously chosen to find out more.

They wanted to know how they could participate. They were eager to learn how we organize a successful international event that reaches so many people using sports and other activities as a way to further peace and harmony. It was a challenging and engaging afternoon.

The WHR Workshop Agenda:

Our workshop team decided to focus more on practical aspects and be flexible based on the participants input and questions.

1. Confirming Participants origin and specific Interests

2. Example of Media Coverage of WHR
