The magic of being a project coordinatorI was the Project Coordinator for the Mosaic project Tillsammans that took place in Malmö, Sweden. It was a week long day camp for children 10 to13 years-old from all over the city. Malmö is a very diverse place with people from all over the world so the idea was to cross the city's borders by using creative media like music, dance and drama. At the end of the week, the group put on a big performance for family and friends. We had 30 kids and 13 leaders that worked together. It was magic!

The Power of TelevisionMilan: This year the CISV chapter of Milan (Italy) decided to focus its attention on a really interesting theme: the power of television. Since television occupies a wide period of time of everyday life, the staff wanted to make participants learn about how much television actually affects every relationship we have. We often use television in our daily life and we probably haven't thought about the actual influence it has on us. Can television be utilized in a positive way?

Think global, act localBig Ideas: Yesterday was a Saturday, and there was a light mist of rain across the town where I live, and I woke up early so I could go to the farmers market. The market takes place weekly at the showgrounds, in a number of big tin sheds, but you have to be there before 10am if you want to get the best produce. I hadn't had any breakfast, so first of all I stopped off at a little stall near the entrance for a hot chocolate and a slice of cake with elderflower and dates.
