Secon World Championship in Cooperation
H.W. Mayor of Kampala together with H.W. Mayor of Entebbe, Jinja, Mukono and
Busia greet you all welcome to the Second World Championship in Cooperation!
Globetree is now moving south to join the Committees who are in their final
preparations for the Second World Championship in Cooperation in Kampala,
Uganda. In a few weeks about 1000 children, youth and adults will come
together to create their vision for a better future.
3rd of June all participants will get together in a joyful Meet and Greet.
4th of June Our Uniting Water Ceremony will be held at the Opening Ceremony
of the WorldCiC and the children will build bridges for the Future Vessel.
Adults will join and support the children’s creation in the evening.
5th of June a Parade through Kampala City will announce the World
Environment Day. A Tree Planting will take place in an area which will
become a park commemorating the Second World Championship in Cooperation.
6th of June is the Closing Ceremony. Our Uniting Water Trophy will be
presented from Kampala to Kuala Lumpur. The Mayors will present The Promise
for the Future to the children. All young participants will get a Gold Medal
– when we cooperate we are all winners!
During all days there will be seminars and workshops. Adults, children and
youth will learn from children who experienced the post election crisis in
Kenya and from girls in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda who are in the LVRLAC
Girl Child Program. Children with disabilities will convey their visions and
work and a lot more.
Please have a look at the Seminar Program!
At the centre of the WorldCiC are the 10 cities/municipalities in Sweden,
Uganda and Kenya who are now in partnership. All partnerships rest on the
foundation of the United Nations documents: The Rights of the Child and
Agenda 21/ Sustainable Development. The Partnership projects will have
their common kick off at the Second World Championship in Cooperation. It’s
not only 10 cities/municipalities in partnership; it’s also two regions;
Lake Victoria Region Local Authorities Cooperation and the Swedish
Association of Local Authorities with financial support from SALA IDA/Sida.
With this mail we enclose the WorldCiC program and the WorldCiC seminar
Kampala City Council and Globetree welcome you all who are on your way to
We also welcome you who in the last minute will decide to join!
