Exploring the potential of a performance approach to unleash and nurture the human capacity to create, collaborate and change the world.
What are the objectives of this meeting? The meeting will provide a forum where Professionals from the Medical and Motivational fields, Youth & HIV advocates from diverse backgrounds and working on different issues can engage with each other and with like-minded donors, in order to:
* Create better awareness for the HIV/AIDS endemic and related medications

* Advance ways to encourage those living with HIV/AIDS
* Frankly discuss how NGO's and women's organizations can work together in this area

What will the program look like? Unlike other events of NY Teen Pregnancy Network, instead, an international planning committee which is headed by Prof. Forrest Alton has already scheduled a comprehensive program and invited selected Resource Persons.
The program will include:
*· Thought-provoking plenary sessions;
* In-depth breakout sessions for strategy-development;
* Simulation games to fast-track learning;
*· Capacity and skills-building sessions; and
* Debates to stimulate discussion
* Presentations by our sponsors and donors
In addition to the main program, the meeting will also host book launches, artistic and cultural activities and, as with all NY Teen Pregnancy’s events, plenty of space and opportunity for informal networking and alliance-building.
All sessions will have interpretation into English, Spanish and French.
