In celebrating Crossing Borders 20th anniversary, we also promote unity in diversity, intercultural meeting and international exchange toward realizing our common humanity and mutual dependency in a truly global community. This celebration offers a unique opportunity for the CB national coordinators and alumni from across the globe to reunite and share experiences from their lives. It is also an occasion for people who aspire and cherish a globalized world in which diversity is celebrated as an asset to join the CB community of global citizens.
Therefore, all CB coordinators, alumni, members and friends are warmly invited to the event on 18th October 2019 at 14-22.00.
The event is in collaboration with the Cinemateket of the Danish Film Institute in Copenhagen which will provide the space for the celebration. The event will be global, intercultural and fun. It will comprise, speeches, songs, debates, dance, films, slam poetry, highlights of CB work and achievements. While the event will be fun, we will address current pressing global issues of CB focus: human rights, climate change, youth participation, migration, intercultural co-existence, storytelling, and peaceful resolution of conflicts. We will have food from 20 different countries prepared by people from those countries.
Crossing Borders Patron, HE Ambassador Zindzi Mandela (the daughter of Nelson and Winnie Mandela) and CB Life Ambassador of Goodwill bestseller author Sara Omar will head the celebration.
