B7 Baltic Islands Network

DSC_7914On Sunday, 4rd July the last goodbyes were said between the youngsters who took part of B7 youth meeting in Hiiumaa. On 27th June participants came from Hiiumaa, Saaremaa, Gotland, Öland and Åland, all together there were 81 people. It was very sad to go apart after spending such fun and interesting week together.

During the week students took part in different workshops, which were dancing, photography, arts, music and sports. In addition, they worked in small groups with direct and open discussions about EU and youth opportunities in EU or brainstorms about youth projects in the future, where they faced several themes. All the developed ideas were shown in front of everybody and came out original and stunning. It appeared, that younger generations are aware of their role and their rights in building a better future for their island and thankfully they are all interested in doing it.

Besides working and thinking, youngsters had plenty of leisure time, which they filled with having soccer match with locals, organizing their own B7 talent show, having bonfire, sunbathing, visiting beach, having disco every evening, watching soccer world cup and so on. They also had trips around the beautiful island of Hiiumaa on three days. All the activities were accompanied by the camp song, which was written by Hiiumaa group for B7 camp in 2005.

Though the last groups left on Sunday morning, the finishing party was held already on Friday. At the ceremony all participants showd what they had learned in workshops, after that they had festive dinner and later concert by a local band and last disco night.

Youngsters had wonderful time, made many new friends and international relationships and got plenty of unforgettable memories. Shedding tears when leaving showd, that everyone had enjoyed the week. We are very thankful for all the people and insitutions, who helped us to organize this fantastic meeting: Annely Veevo, Mare Aasma, Siim Romanov, Youth in Action, Leader, B7, Gambling Tax Council, Cultural Endowment of Estonia, Hiiumaa County Government, Kärdla Town Government and Kõrgessaare Municipality.
