We would like to thank the organisation team, the participants, supporters, sponsors, patrons and all others who helped to make this voyage a remarkable event.
See you soon!
Sailors finally found out what the happening is all about and divided into groups according to what interested them the most:free hugs, good-bye service, living library, theatre, mini flash-mobs - you name it, and started preparing for the big event. What they did not know was that in the evening they would get a special surprise - a maxi flash-mob where all of the sailors would find their dancing shoes and polka their way into the next day.
But just before the surpise in the evening, sailors visited the V-Klub for the World Café - the discussion with local politicians. There each sailor had a chance to talk to local politicians. The patron of the meeting was Ondrej Liška,who opened the discussion with his speech. The political scene of Liberec was represented by D. Vaclavik, M. Pokorna, M. Puta, R. Cikl and O. Ćervinka. The debate reflected on the current situation in youth policy. The main message of the meeting could be summed up with the following sentence: everyone should be active; start changing something on your own, instead of waiting for someone to do it.
The sailors were also happy about the setting of the meeting: this time the politicians came to the youth, and not the other way around as it usually happens. This gave a perfect ground for discussions on an equal level.
All in all a very productive day for the sailors. Stay tuned for more!
City Game & Getting to Know Liberec
Sailors took over the streets of Liberec and discovered its beauty, secret nooks and opportunities that it offers to young people and came up with 101 unusual ways for using a sailor's umbrella.
Have you every tried to exchange a T-shirt on the street? Think it’s easy? Not really! Group number 1 knows all about it. Finally one nice girl could not resist the sexy sailors and the mission of exchanging the T-shirt was successful.
Group number 2 tasted the best Czech beer and their special task to exchange a yo-yo was a success. Finally they got a great deal – a yo-yo for a teddy-bear and a teddy-bear for a stick horse. Everybody was jealous!
Group number 3 had a nice afternoon on the main square. Damian taught a special Irish dance.
The trip to the top of the Ještěd was a true experience for Group number 4. They saw a prestigious soccer match and chatted with a friendly waitress.
In front of the biggest shopping mall called Nisa, Group number 5 performed a special kind of martial arts.
Group number 6 found a lovely present for Johnny Sailor – one green glove. We are not exactly sure how he will benefit from it or how will he use it, but he will definitely love it! Also, for Johnny’s children, the group brought an interactive game!
Intercultural Evening included sharing knowledge about Sailors’ countries. Sailors had the opportunity to try national food and drinks from all over Europe and got to improve their dancing skills. Now we are looking forward to see Sailors’ dancing during Happening.
Be sure to come back and check for updates because we have a lot more coming!
