About

WHAT

The Initiative Forum is an event for changemakers of all ages from all over the world. Here they get the opportunity to come together, share their projects, inspirations, experiences and nurture future collaborations. The Spark to Flame forum will explore the theme “Spark to Flame – Reignite the connection with ourselves, each other and nature” through workshops, lectures, artistic creation, dancing, music, storytelling, crafts, tasty food, and sharing ideas over coffee (fika). We look forward to meeting you between the forest and fjord here in Ytterjarna, Sweden, from the 26th of February to the 2nd of March.

WHY

We chose the theme “Spark to Flame – Reignite the connection with ourselves, each other and nature” because we believe that now, more than ever, we are called to address the disconnection that exists in the world. The world is experiencing a huge crisis in the realms of connection and we want to be part of bringing together those (you!) who wish to see a more connected and integrated world.

WHO

YIP, the International Youth Initiative Program, is social entrepreneurship training for young adults who want to create positive social change in the world. We spend ten months learning about the world, each other, and ourselves through a curriculum that engages the head, heart, and will. The Initiative Forum is one of the ways that we bring our learning out into the world and host a space where changemakers and those striving for a more connected world can come together and share ideas, inspiration, and experiences.
