Challenge to ECPD Youth Forum Participants, Belgrade & Novi Sad

Challenge to ECPD Youth Forum Participants, 

Belgrade & Novi Sad

 

For the 7th ECPD Youth Forum, Belgrade and Novi Sad my challenge to participants is either to write a poem in the tradition of a lamentation written in ancient Nineveh or to draw a sketch-cartoon that portrays-depicts the current status of the world. The aim of poem or sketch is to release youthful imagination-creativity. A reflective lamentation from Nineveh describes the sinking of a ship following an eclipse. The ship brought bread but it also brought suffering. It had a captain full of heart and soul but after the shipwreck he had no more power. One Forum came in the wake of a rare solar eclipse, which darkened a large part of the earth. We also saw a symbolic rising moon of Youth, heralding a new dawn.  Belgrade is a likely and lively place for verse and mirth. The Belgrade poem can focus on man’s accumulated knowledge, which now far outstrips his understanding of reality. Controlling this asymmetry can only be achieved with the crucial help of youth. Reducing the ongoing active destruction of man’s habitat and his planet Earth can be the basis for a creative sketch.
