After more than 70 events in four countries, it is not only the summer that is ending but the Youth against AIDS summer tour that is coming to a close. Youngsters finished off the summer at the Lollapalooza festival in Berlin, taking place near the horse racing-track Hoppegarten in this year. Here, Youth against AIDS (YAA) gained the attention from more than 160,000 visitors from all over the world.
Altogether, YAA reached millions of adolescents at events such as the ParookaVille, the VideoDays, the GamesCom or numerous CSD’s in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. You can find an accurate overview of the #YAAsummertour here.
After a short breather, the volunteers will already start planning the campaign weeks, which take place in the course of
the World AIDS Day on December 1. On the 9th and 10th of September, 20 youngsters were thus trained to be Peers and run sex education workshops at German schools. The next so- called Academy is already in the making, on which you can find more information here.
