I am so grateful for the opportunity to have moderated a creative writing workshop around visions for a better world with youth from the Refugee Trauma Initiative based in Greece. It was truly inspiring to hear your ideas and dreams!
“Making the impossible possible for a little while…” was the theme. Brainstorming sessions and guided visualizations led to rich discussions around the world we would like to create and live in. In groups, the participants built up their ideas into descriptions and short stories, and then in the final session we all discussed what we can do as individuals to help create this world they imagined.
Though there were small differences in each vision, the ideas were similar. The worlds described were equal; without racism, discrimination, nor poverty; with access to education and healthcare for everyone, and people living in harmony despite their differences.
