This weekend was filled with lots of activities for Diana and me. On Friday evening the NEO (Nettverk, engasjement og oppfølging) we joined the staff of NEO for preparing the upcoming weekend. After taking merchandise and materials for the whole weekend there, we went down to the local supermarket and filled our car up with food-supplies for a whole weekend for 80 people; in other words: LOTS OF FOOD!
Once the participants arrived the Divers-Team and us prepared a small social activity for all NEO participants which included questions about their last CISV-summer, future travel plans and funny stories from every person. All of this was drawn onto a big world map - the results of this workshop is shown here:
The next day was the international day of peace - so we started the day by showing a short video about peace day and the organization Peace One Day that CISV is working with closely. The participants of NEO were invited to write the answer to this years Peace One Day question "Who will you make peace with" on blank paper on the wall - next to information about the Peace Day.
In the evening, once we returned from the city center, we participated in a motivational activity and got to hang out and talk to the participants of NEO. Sunday morning started with an activity from the Divers-crew, with the theme - you might have already guessed - Diversity!
All in all it was a very inspirational and fun weekend with lots of new faces and ideas for the upcoming year.
