This new web is to compile information on the past summits and keep you updated with new community projects.
On November 18th the #UNMS2021 is once again bringing together community minded individuals and businesses but this time exclusively to help our youth.
This year's event is shining a spotlight on the problems that the younger generation of international residents are facing with the intention of finding ways to help their further integration in the community.
This includes career opportunities and work experience, the need for suitable leisure options and safe hang out spaces and addressing the alarming increase in suicide attempts by 10-24 year olds.
We aim to discuss the issues and leave the event with clear objectives of the actions to be taken thereafter.
Your support is very much appreciated. We can do this!
Suicide is now the second leading cause of death among the 10-24 age group. For this reason, we wish to help fund the charity La Barandilla in their aim to turn their existing help-line into a 24-7 service, with international counsellors.
Great schools and universities are not enough for our local youth. They also need to know they can aspire to a future career in the city we have brought them to and asked them to call "home".
We therefore appeal to local companies to open their doors to show our children what professions are available, to embrace interns and offer training and advancement opportunities.
We appealing to hotels, restaurants and sports clubs to cater to our supposedly privileged international youth.
They need hang out spaces, events suitable for their age and requirements whilst they grow into the all rounded and responsible adults we aspire for them to become.
