Gaziantep – TOG Council

The 19th TOG youth council took place in Gaziantep from the 2nd to the 5th of February 2012. 300 young people gathered to organise and follow presentations and workshops about activism, human rights, gender issues and recycling, among other topics.

The Gaziantep University campus hosted the council and its young attendees. The site’s immensity, its soviet architecture and the unusual calm from students being on holiday gave me the eery, soothing impression of living in a ghost town.

About seboseba

I grew up in Essex, I happen to be French and I love Turkey (the country), especially Istanbul, among other places, for having lived there. I studied European policies and communication, graduating with a MA in both (yep, studying is still almost free in France). I wrote a research dissertation on employee recognition, the origins of virtue and corporate social responsibility. I love photography (hence the blogging), European training courses, forum theatre, jazz, blues, rock music, hiking in the mountains, skiing. If I could choose, I'd be a student all my life, but that doesn't pay much! You might have guessed by now, I'm looking for a job, but communication looks like a dead end these days so maybe I'll watch Midnight Cowboy again and get inspired...:-)
