An All-Island delegation from Ireland led by NETLOVE visited a "Youth HQ" (QJ) in Paris, France: a pertinent model for Youth Empowerment. You can now read a summary of their findings, with clear recommendations.

Crises today show that it is not enough to have a "network" to flourish as an individual nor as a community. On the contrary, we must learn to transcend the barriers of "us" and "them" into "we" to truly prosper. The happiness of one, is the happiness of all. The discomfort of one is the discomfort of all.
Young people are the leaders of today and the decision-makers (and takers!) of tomorrow. Why is it so important to involve as many youth as possible in order to change the world? What difference can they make and what insights can they give for building better societies?
It sure is. LOVE is the most powerful weapon which you can use to transform the human heart. Today, more than ever, our world - and our hearts - need an instrument capable to heal the deep wounds caused by prejudices of all kinds. Love is the source of all things.
Peace, Security, and Solidarity depend on it.
This picture was taken in the Holy Land when I served in the capacity of Deputy Secretary-General of the Baha'i International Community at the Baha'i World Centre.
During my time there, I learned about the importance of the Power of Love: not only on paper but in reality, not only with religious (or not) people, politicians, journalists, activists, young people, or locals but with everyone, women, men and children alike.
We could have focused on our differences and yet... we still found ways to work together because we purposefully chose to focus on what united us not what divided us... through respect, cooperation, and often friendship.
Today, love is the only remedy that can bind our hearts together and teach us that should any difference arise amongst us, we can work on it for "We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divide us." (Jo Cox)
To focus on what we love and what unite us make us surpass the goals we initially set and overcome the toughest challenges.
Unity- Togetherness is the mean to reciprocity and cooperation between people, regions, and nations. It nurtures friendship and trust and destroys bullying, fears and doubts.
Now, it is important to read one's reality, to assess how to best use this powerful instrument, and to build a "NETLOVE" in a practical and uplifting way, so one can transform as well as transform his/her/their environment.
Pragmatism and realism are good, however, they should not be confused with cynicism and extreme relativism. Today, we see the glass is half empty, but could we purposefully focus on the glass half full too? Today, we can see many walls, but could we purposefully focus on bridges as well? Could we ask ourselves what are the capacities, skills, and attitudes we, together, need to acquire to build a world with more peace, justice and equality for all?
There is never one way to read reality. And everyone should feel welcome to share their insights, their opinions, for truth comes from the clashes of opinions. There is one undeniable truth however:
that we, humans, are all endowed with dignity and rights, with a conscience which, when dedicated to serving our needs and the needs of the people we live with, through cooperation and unity, not without its own challenges, of course, we will still be "prosperous" beyond any expectations, and beyond our wildest dreams.
I wish for our common shared humanity to transform hate into love, frustration into compassion, war into peace, despair into hope, selfishness into solidarity, enmity into friendship, and most importantly, network into netlove!
