Arte Diem 2008

Arte Diem 2008 was the first one hosted in Asia, celebrating cultural diversity, and building towards a peaceful and fruitful coexistence between young people from different social backgrounds in Asia and across the world. This was a SJ Vietnam project in collaboration with Yap and NVDA network, with the support of Art Venture. It took place in Hanoi during and after the mid autumn festival (03-20 September 2008).

We received 30 young people: 20 from Europe and 10 from Asia. The international volunteers, Vietnamese volunteers and professional artists used art as a tool for promoting a culture of peace and open dialogue. Through discussion, creativity, learning and workshop, barriers, cultural and even language incomprehension could be broken down and new ideas could originate in order to promote peace through art and voluntarism. The volunteers shared life experiences with local people who were disabled, disadvantaged or lived in poverty.

World heritage project

SJ Vietnam's workcamp in Halong Bay was selected as pioneer of the World Heritage Volunteers 2008 and to make use of the Patrimonito mascot, symbolizing young heritage guardians, to educate the public about World Heritage protection and conservation. The project gathered participants between 16 and 30 years old from different countries around a common project requiring collective effort and involvement. Specific international volunteer projects were organized around the theme of World Heritage. The initiative aimed to provide opportunities and tools to sensitize youth organizations and groups to World Heritage, operating in the sphere of non-formal education in general and using voluntary service as a method in particular. It was jointly coordinated by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVS). The project's activities were designed according to the needs of the host community and they put strong emphasis on contact and dialogue with the local population. This two week youth workcamp welcomed thirty local and international participants.
