Thank you for your enthusiasm!
We still feel great. :)
A lot has happened in just the two weeks since the conference, with Christmas passing us in a flash, and the New Year here in just a few days. But even as many things have happened, we are glad to hear from quite a few participants that they found it useful, and that the initial energy from the high of the conference has steadily been converted into thoughts about what the possible next steps should be to advance the ideas that came into being at the conference.
It is with this in mind that the organising team is continuing to link people up, and the BuddhistYouth Network is also keen to see how they will be able to help spirited individuals like you pick up the baton and run. We will keep you posted on this website and also on the BuddhistYouth Network's Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/BuddhistYouthNetwork/)
To help us collectively remember what actually transpired at the conference, the team has also decided to compile a "report" about it! But instead of doing a usual written report, we have uploaded videos + presentations that took place on the day itself (so you can watch it in case you can't fall asleep). Hopefully, these videos help us capture for a little while longer the sense of shared ownership and earnest exchange that we were blessed with during the 13th of December 2015.
(The full list of videos can be accessed on the SoBC 2015 YouTube channel.)
People + Networks + Ideas -> SOMETHING BIG.. in the future?
Somehow, something happens when all these 3 conditions come together. We will not be able to foresee what is going to come of this Conference in even two months' time, let alone in a year, but at least we now have expanded our circles beyond what they originally were, and perhaps rekindled some long-lost karmic connections in the process. Our hope is that one day when you have an idea and need like-minded friends to help, you can tap on the connections you made at the conference (and you can then watch the videos here again to remember what happened!). And the BuddhistYouth Network will be there to help facilitate that process.
Once again the organising team would like to thank you ALL for the wonderful time we had at the conference. Our paths will definitely cross again sometime soon.
