PWN Stockholm & Up with People - Take a Stand workshop

13 November 2018 18:30 - 20:30 Folkuniversitetet, room 323

Will the world be a better place in 20 years?  

As an individual, how can I make a difference in the world?

Welcome to an inspiring and thought-provoking evening organized in collaboration with Up with People, where through discussion and debate we seek to empower ourselves and young people to be positive agents of change for a more hopeful, trusting and peaceful world. The goal of this workshop will be to encourage participants of all ages and backgrounds to learn about their similarities and differences, and find common ground through respectful dialogue. Each participant will share their opinions with the group on hypothetical choices and worldviews - and Take a Stand for what you believe in! We will discuss questions concerning different themes, such as: 

  • Diversity & Equality
  • Leadership & Ethics
  • Community Engagement
  • Cross-Cultural Values & Beliefs

At the end of the evening, we will wrap-up with a critical reflection session to analyze and challenge our presuppositions, understandings and beliefs, in light of what we have learned during the workshop. We hope that the lessons learned during the workshop – to act as global citizens and be positive voices for change – will inspire you to get involved and be part of the change. 

The cast of Up with People will have a public performance at Göta Lejon Theatre on November 14th at 19:30 - don't forget to check them out! Get your tickets here:

Our commitment runs deep and our aspirations are bold. We strive to: 

  • Increase understanding, respect and dignity for all – We seek to overcome bigotry and break down barriers of culture, race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and economic disparity by using the power of music, education and service.
  • Foster engaged communities – We collaborate with each community we visit, working together to address local issues and form community connections that enhance compassion and trust.
  • Empower youth as positive change agents – We strive to help youth throughout the world become more aware of global and local issues, realize their individual capacity and inspire them to take personal action to make positive change.
  • Build an international network of global citizens – Wherever we travel or our music is heard, we seek to encourage and connect those who yearn for a more peaceful world, respect cultural differences, and act to build trust.
