Wow, what another fantastic Veida!
For those of you reading this who haven’t heard of Veida this is FZY’s National Conference the pinnacle in the FZY calendar were the entire movement comes together those aged 12-23 to debate ideology and the way the movement is ran and just to hang out and catch up with friends.
This is the ultimate form of empowerment where our members shape their movement and elect the movement’s national director the Mazkir/a. I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Mazkir elect, Mr. Joshua Marks a massive Mazel tov!
This year the theme of Veida was Hippies. Why? Because the Hippie Movement wanted to change the world. They saw elements of society that they didn’t like and they reacted to it; this is the same agenda as Youth Movements who see things in society that they want to change and together they aim to change it clearly – flower power at its wildest form. A Youth Movement needs movement and Veida is a catalyst for this.
This year sessions were run on the relevance of our movement’s ideology through a real FZY hippy museum, activism through rallies and festivals, changes in society through drama and improvisation, the use of graffiti, where we created our own John Lennon wall (left).
Our three wonderful chairs of steering Tami, Katie and Ed, together with their committee, ran an incredible Veida with true FZY family atmosphere.
The Mazkirut (FZY’s national executive board) and Netzigim (FZY regional representatives) were elected and we – the FZY movement team – are very excited to work closely with them in the coming year. Debates included issues with pluralism, the mazkirut itself, FZY’s charity and much more.
Remember, Veida is not the end, as a movement we must be active together to achieve the changes we put forward!
