Challenging Stereotypes. Building Understanding.

TBT: Young Bridge Builders 2013

TBT/ Throwback Thursday... For the next four weeks, we will share a story from a Bridges event from over the years. This week we want to share this video of the Young Bridge Builders exchange trip from 2013. 

 Bridges for Communities invited eight students and young adults from Amman, Jordan, to spend ten days in the UK -- visiting Bristol, Nottingham, Cardiff, and London. The trip involved a number of activities -- from meeting the Lord Mayor of Bristol, to volunteering with the Arches Project in Nottingham, to enjoying a feast on the beach in Wales with a group from Cardiff Student Action for Refugees -- and was focussed primarily on building friendships with people in the UK. Have a look at what they got up to, and what they had to say about it...

If you are interesting in getting involved with events like this in the future -- either to host visitors from abroad, or to visit another country yourself -- please do get in touch with us. We'd love to hear from you!
