World Festivals

The international youth meetings with up to 50,000 participants (1929 in Vienna) are an important tradition of socialist youth organisations. In 1952, IUSY reconvened this tradition with the first IUSY Camp in Vienna.

Famous quotes containing the words festivals and/or world:

    This is certainly not the place for a discourse about what festivals are for. Discussions on this theme were plentiful during that phase of preparation and on the whole were fruitless. My experience is that discussion is fruitless. What sets forth and demonstrates is the sight of events in action, is living through these events and understanding them.
    Doris Lessing (b. 1919)

    The whole world is an omen and a sign. Why look so wistfully in a corner? Man is the Image of God. Why run after a ghost or a dream? The voice of divination resounds everywhere and runs to waste unheard, unregarded, as the mountains echo with the bleatings of cattle.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
