25-27 October 2018, Hakfar Hayarok, Israel. The annual YOCOPAS Conference – Youth Organized Collaboration for Peace and Sustainability Conference is one of the highlights of the academic year at the Eastern Mediterranean International School(EMIS), a project labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
The theme of this fourth edition is: “My Story. Your Story. Our Story”. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about storytelling, different narratives and the way to present personal opinions.
The YOCOPAS initiative was established in 2015 by students and educators from EMIS in order to bring together high-school students from the Mediterranean region and beyond, in the world at large, with the objective to create a platform for collaborative action and to build capacities among students for them to emerge as leaders and social entrepreneurs in their local communities. The annual conference of the YOCOPAS initiative is both youth-led and youth-targeted. It offers students aged between 16 and 18 years opportunities to engage in interactive workshops, discussions and social activities.
An international audience of over 500 young people, teachers and high school principals is expected.
