Youth UPF

Youth UPF encourages, sponsors and organises many types of events as well as focussing on leadership training for global citizenship.

UN Refugee Week

Refugee Week is organised and promoted by the United Nations to discover and celebrate the contributions that refugees have made in the UK and other nations over the years. The celebration takes place via a series of events, and one of the first events to take place was Youth UPF’s evening “Forced Displacement and Migration: Time to Rethink Human Dignity.”

The Youth UPF event was made up of two sets of panelists. Panel 1 was focused upon refugees from North Korea and Syria, and panel 2 was focused on displacement and migration in Libya after the fall of Gaddafi. Each panelist was invited to share their own experiences, some speakers giving incredible insight into their personal struggles and others speaking highly of the organisations that seek to help refugees to make a new life for themselves.

humphrey hawksley talkHumphrey Hawksley is the author of numerous books, the international correspondent for the BBC, and has been in the Navy. As such many were curious to hear what he had to say with regards to his career and the path that he took to get to where he is today at our “An Evening With” YouthUPF event.

However, Humphrey Hawksley didn’t just provide a window into what he has done in his career, he went further and offered some ‘heartfelt and sound advice’, which resonated with the audience because of the ‘simplicity and care’ with which he said it. That advice? “Never allow anyone to tell you that you cannot do it”, “don’t badly offend someone because life goes around and 20 years later you will need their help”, “marry someone who supports you, not someone who is going to compete with you” and “if you want to make a difference your private life is going to take a hit”.
