Gothenburg 2020 - 16th National Session of EYP Sweden
Crossroads – The Future of Our Great Challenges
Welcome to Gothenburg 2020 - 16th National Session of EYP Sweden.
"Technological and scientific advances have taken the world by storm. Life has never been easier than today and with these, and other societal developments, the world is now more globalised than ever before. However, these advances have been accompanied by further challenges for humankind and to planet Earth.
With this in mind, a fundamental part of Gothenburg 2020 will be to reflect on the roots of these challenges, draw from past experience, and determine the most effective path, and thereby contribute in bringing forth a brighter future.
While doing this, it is vital that we face reality, there are no perfect solutions, no perfect paths, that will satisfy all interest-groups in society. Different decisions pave the way for different journeys – most of which share the same objective of making a difference. Some paths will lead to dead-ends, while others will reach the desired result. What is important, however, is not merely the correct path and its consequences, but understanding the reasoning behind why it was entered upon.
A crossroad is a place where one has to make a decision. A decision; whether to take the shorter, already paved road or the longer, unexplored road. Dare to make the difference by being full of courage when choosing the path. Dare to shape crossroads leading us positively through The Future of Great Challenges."
- Maja Ahlberg and Arad Aslrousta, Project Managers of Gothenburg 2020
Officials are expected to arrive at the session on Thursday 19/03 for CMOJ Training.
