RYS 2005 National and International Projects Review

RYS Annual Report 2005

In 2005, we brought the RYS spirit of healing and reconciliation to areas such as Sri Lanka, Nigeria, Indonesia and Thailand, sites of recent religious and ethnic strife. The beautiful island nation of Palau hosted an environmental project. Creating community art for peace was an approach Rev. Carol Pobanz used in launching the RYS Peace Park project in Bristol, UK. While creating a mosaic at a local mosque, Muslims, Christians, Unificationists, Hindus and Jews worked as one team. At the same time, in stark contrast, a group of terrorists exploded bombs in the streets of London. Two visions of life are being presented to our youth - a clear indicator of why the RYS model is so vitally needed.

 This was the second RYS project in New Zealand and the 1 st international program. This project drew much support from Australia and pulled in participants from a wide variety of nations and religious traditions. Networking with organizations was a key to the programs success as Habitat for Humanity, the local civic leaders and the Moreau Youth Movement worked to model the pattern of cooperative living so critical in building a culture of everlasting peace.
