International Year of Youth - Zambia - 15 May 2011 YouTube video

Welcome to the video "Adventure into Zambia"

- where students invoke USA President Obama and UN Secretary General.


International Year of Youth - Zambia

The World Harmnoy Run proudly supports the International Year of Youth (IYY)  proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly. See recent YouTube ZAMBIA video from this day in Zambia which illustrates IYY slogan "Our Year Our VoiceInternational Year of Youth - Zambia World Harmony


The United Nations and the UN Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) are supporting the International Year of Youth and its theme of dialogue and mutual understanding, being celebrated through August of 2011.The slogan is "Our Year" "Our Voice". In these clips you hear the voice of Africa, of Zambia, of Youth.

Youth seen holding the torch say they are NOT looking to countries' presidents, United Nations Secretary-General or other leaders to change the world. Their "hour has come" and they voice where peace begins.

The World Harmony Run is a global torch relay, founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1987. It seeks to strengthen international friendship and understanding. As a symbol of harmony, runners carry a flaming torch, passing it from hand to hand traveling through over 100 nations around the globe.

This video includes a short introduction from Davidson Hepburn, the President of the General Conference of UNESCO, followed by four schools visited in Zambia late last year
Dr. Hepburn, recently commented on the Run's support for their Year of Youth. "By encouraging young people to express their aspirations for harmony today, the World Harmony Run is surely building the foundation for a culture of peace tomorrow."

Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007), Founder of the Harmony Run composed the theme song which ends "We are the Oneness and Fullness of Tomorrow's Sun". With powerful expression these youth made that promise of harmony, peace and oneness their own.

With gratitude to four featured Schools: Lotus Basic, Nkhwazi Primary, Jacaranda Basic, New Northmead Basic and special thanks to Lusaka friends and supporters of Zambian World Harmony Run Team.
