The International Human Solidarity Day was recently marked. Sharing with others is the key message of the day. What do young people say? How do they see sharing with others? Flaka, Hamide, Stefan, and Milan clarify their attitude. This text is a continuation of the RCT activities, training the youth on reporting on multiethnic relations. Read below.
Knowledge might be power but it’s much more powerful when it’s shared. If one person knows how to do something it can prevent others from making mistakes.
The importance of learning from the people around us should not be underestimated. When we are open to learning from others, we benefit from their experience as well as our own and we can inherit their wisdom and knowledge.
Some good important sharing’s are traditions, education, culture, views, religion, and many more things also.
How do young people perceive sharing? Our interlocutors have one thing in common – strong empathy!
“In my opinion, one of the most important things to share is nice communication and jokes that make people laugh, because you can create good memories when you are surrounded with good positivity” – says Flaka.
“Why is sharing important? Because, we share our view of culture for a better tomorrow, to make peaceful future especially for youth and people in our community” – Stefan adds.
“Sharing can actually mean, giving something as an outright gift, for example, to share one’s food really means to give some of it as a gift. Sharing is a basic component of human interaction and is responsible for straightening social ties and ensuring a person’s well-being” – Milan explains.
“Sharing helps to interact in a meaningful and pleasant way that builds community” – Hamide states.
All of the interlocutors are pointing out to one of Peter Ellyard’s quotations:
„The future is not someplace we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths to it are not found, but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination”.
And what is sharing for you?
