With great sadness we received the news that Claudia Meier from Jubla Switzerland passed away yesterday. She was very active in Fimcap. She was the head of the international committee of Jubla, she was part of the team that hosted our last General Assembly, she participated in the World Camp in India and contributed in so many of our meetings. Claudia, we will miss you. Rest in peace.
EuroCamp is an annual summer camp organised by FIMCAP Europe for youth members and youth leaders. Every year one of FIMCAP Europe‘s member organisations hosts the EuroCamp. This year Katholische Jungschar from Austria is inviting you to take part in an extraordinary experience.
Theme this year is “Open the dialogue”. Together with youngsters from a migration or refugee background we will talk about social inclusion. What does it mean and what can local groups do? We will talk with people who are influenced by the refugee crisis and try to put ourselves into their shoes.
EuroCamp takes place from the 4th until the 13th of August in Austria. More information can be found on the EuroCamp website.
