We are looking for participants for an international youth exchange, which will take place in February, 2009 near the town of Khirshlukh, Germany. During the 10 day exchange, 40 youth from four European countries — Germany, Ukraine, Poland and Russia will work on the theme “East/West — From Conflict to Appreciating Diversity.” This project is supported by the EU program “Youth in Action.”

Dear Sumy! We invite you to join our action “Light a candle for tolerance!”

This event will take place in Sumy, on 15 November. Participants will gather at 14:45 at Independence Square. Participants will form two lines along Sabornia Street and at 15:00 and will all light candles together.

As a token of unity with Europe, light a flashlight for tolerance in town out of respect for those who are different from you!

Participants of this action will get souvenirs from the campaign “Tolerance as way to Europe.” It is necessary for participants to bring their own candles.

This event takes place during the Week of Tolerance, and is part of the Ukrainian campaign...
