Youngsolwara is a regional movement comprised of a collective of activists from the Pacific. We share common concerns on issues impacting our Pacific people and our islands.
Youngsolwara is a movement birthed from the regional gathering, Wansolwara Madang Dance in 2014. The Madang Dance was a gathering of practitioners, academics, musicians, bloggers, artists, university students, community workers, social workers and activists, youth and church thinkers.
The Madang Dance provided the opportunity for youth and students who attended the meeting to have a separate space from the larger Wansolwara Movement to discuss issues concerning the Pacific through a young Pacific person’s perspective.
Participants include students from the Divine Word University (PNG), University of Papua New Guinea (PNG), University of Goroka (PNG), University of the South Pacific (Fiji), West Papuan activists, Victoria University (New Zealand), Bismarck Ramu Group (BRG), Pacific Network on Globalisation (Regional), Pacific Conference of Churches (Regional) and other participants from Papua New Guinea.
