10 October 2019   |   Oceania, "Hombre Mundo" camp, Teens for Unity
 

The Teens for Unity from Oceania sent us this short video about their Hombre Mundo camp. They went to Lake Mungo, in Australia, to find out about the life and culture of the aboriginal people. It was a unique experience that opened their hearts and minds.

THE “HOMBRE MUNDO” CAMP

Cantiere Hombre Mundo is an international workshop promoted by Teens for Unity for United World which took place in the past few years in South America, Eastern Europe and the entire world. Until now there were two editions, first in South America in 2014 and second in Eastern Europe in 2017. The concept is to build in the participants during it’s two weeks the mentality of “Citizen of the World” (in Spanish “Hombre Mundo”). The first week the participants spent together in a big camp/s and then they spread themselves in smaller camps in the locality, and for one week they put into practice the new mentality of “Hombre Mundo” by working for the good of the other person’s country in concrete social projects.
