In 1994, a group of inspired individuals created what would become the largest international grassroots organization in the Tibetan Freedom Movement — Students for a Free Tibet (SFT). This year is SFT’s 25th anniversary, and we’re dedicating it to the grassroots — the backbone of SFT.
We recently concluded our three-day “Youth for Tibet: Europe Meetup” event (May 3-5) in Paris, France. Students for a Free Tibet organized this event with our friends from the Tibetan Youth Association of Europe to strengthen youth engagement throughout Europe, and especially France.
Taglined “connecting identities, creating a movement,” the goal of the meetup was to create a space where Tibetan youth could engage in meaningful dialogue about their individual identities and how to connect and leverage those experiences and traits for the Tibetan Freedom Movement.
Participants and facilitators joined the meetup from Belgium, Canada, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
We’re planning for more trainings and conferences in 2019, but we need your support to make it happen! These events are a major component of cultivating young leaders, strengthening our grassroots, and, in turn, invigorating the Tibetan Freedom Movement.
