Together with our speaker, Salomon Benjamin, we will be going on a journey, thinking about the past, present and future of our YMCAs.

  • What was George Williams' heartbeat like when he founded the YMCA?
  • How did the YMCA change society back then?
  • Is the spirit still the same?
  • What did we do wrong?
  • What shapes and forms does the YMCA have now?
  • What will keep the YMCA going in today's changing Europe?

At the end of this journey we will go home with inspirational answers, memories of great encounters, new ideas and renewed motivation.
