Beyond Violence was awarded the European Youth Award (EYA) in the category Pursue Truth! Beyond Violence Executive Director Tim Williams and Blog Manager Ayesha Carmouche travelled to Graz, Austria from 28 to 30 November to participate in the winners’ workshop weekend. The two participated in many workshops and met a lot of other interesting groups with whom Beyond Violence may be able to cooperate on joint projects in the future. Tim gave a passionate ten-minute presentation to a 19-person jury and an audience of several hundred on what Beyond Violence is all about. A group of Austrian students gave us a poster presentation with business model suggestions for the organisation and ways to develop the project further.
“I feel that the weekend went very well indeed - it was so great to meet a lot of inspiring young social entrepreneurs who were also using technology to promote social good and our project was very well received,” says Tim Williams
