Workshop of the International Youth Network (IYN) in Basel for this year's Global Action Month: Say No to Violence: Let's Break the Silence

During Global Action Month (GAM), young people from the International Youth Network (IYN) are once again taking action. The GAM is a partnership campaign of terre des hommes Switzerland and terre des hommes Germany within the framework of the international Terre des Hommes movement and takes place every year in November. Under the motto "Say No to Violence: Let's Break the Silence," the IYN advocates for respect and peaceful coexistence with events, on social media and live on site. In this way, the young people on site contribute to the prevention of violence, collectively raise awareness and show solidarity with other regions of the world.

One of the products that is trying to establish itself is the "Flocão da Paixão". But the battle for market share is fierce.
