MONDAY: STAMP FOR A VIRUS FREE GENERATION
The International Aids Conference in Mexico is huge - as well as the conference place where it is situated. This time the conference organisers opted for two separate ‘buildings’. The closed discussion sessions take place in the conference building, while non-governmental organisations could opt for a space at the global village. At this global village organisations can present themselves in more creative ways; have small scale discussions and network with other organisations. The global village is situated in a big tent near the conference building.
Hivos, the Alliance2015, Stop Aids Now! and the Huariou commission are sharing one such space at the global village. The Alliance2015 started off on Monday with presentations on the following topics: awareness raising through media; youth approaches to prevention; personalisation disclosure; the virus free generation campaign: global youth solidarity; life-skills projects.
The dancers of K-PAG (Kenya Performing Arts Group) are a great success. They perform before each session in order to attract people to the discussions. Also the possibility to give a stamp for a Virus Free Generation is done with great enthusiasm by the visitors of the Alliance2015 stand.
