Online access helps make Salvation Army World Youth Convention a global event

Released 26 April 2010

ORGANISERS of The Salvation Army's World Youth Convention (WYC) to be held in Stockholm, Sweden, are hoping and praying that thousands of youth around the world will make time to view the convention online.

The convention will run from 15-18 July with 1,200 invited delegates from most parts of the world in attendance. However, through live streaming of all events via the internet, anyone with access to the internet can be involved.

If people don't know very much about The Salvation Army then viewing this convention will provide them with a mountain of information through world-class speakers from all continents, including the Army's international leaders, General Shaw Clifton and Commissioner Helen Clifton.

Complementing the speaking sessions will be musicians, singers, actors and dancers from Brazil, Norway, United Kingdom, India, Zambia, Italy, Korea, Sweden, USA and Australia.

Convention coordinator Colonel Birgitte Brekke says, ‘This will be an inspiring event’ and she urges youth around the world to gather with friends to watch the live sessions wherever they have access to a computer, large screen and data projector. ‘In this way there could be mini-youth conventions right around the world!’
