In preparation of the bi-annual Unesco Global General Assembly which is going to take place at the Unesco Global headquarters in Paris early November, Unesco Europe organized a Preparatory Meeting in Brussels last week. This preparatory meeting was focused on young people to give ideas and advice in preparation of the 9th Unesco Youth Forum, prior to the General Assembly.
The Preparatory Youth Meeting of Unesco Europe is a network of Unesco National Commissions, Youth Councils and Youth Organizations from 26 European countries: Belgium, the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Cyprus, Estonia, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Finland, Greece, Germany, Denmark, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Sweden, Ukraine, Montenegro, Russian Federation, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia and Norway.
On Saturday 17 October Mihajela Crnko (Project Lead MyMachine Slovenia) presented MyMachine and MyMachine Slovenia as part of the Slovenian Workshop. The young participants were invited to create their own dream machine. They were really motivated and proud of their inventions. The idea of the workshop was to give them an insight on how an organization like MyMachine is contributing to some of the global goals of Unesco.
