Sunday 16th was the last day of the session and the day, where everybody left Laax and went back home, their minds filled with ideas and inspiration, their hearts filled with love – longing for the session to last forever. And while a group of organisers stayed to clean up everything before leaving for good, Laax was suddenly just an empty village up in the mountains somewhere in Switzerland again. All was unusually quiet and you couldn’t have told that just hours before it was filled with inspiration, friendship and laughter. It felt surreal. But we all knew that we weren’t empty and quiet, that we would carry these memories forever and wouldn’t just stop there. Because it was really love, it was really Laax.
Saturday morning already had the taste of the session going to an end, but not yet were tears shed, as still a lot of resolutions had to be discussed.
On Friday everyone was excited in the morning, as today was the day, when the first resolutions were presented, discussed and voted on during General Assembly.
The Thursday was dedicated to Laax, its surroundings and the rich culture the region has to offer. Participants signed up for hikes to the Caumasee, excursions to an organic farm, learnt how to play the Alphorn and many more.
Wednesday was the last day of Committee Work. The resolutions were finalised and people worked to the last minute. In celebration, the delegates went to dinner with their delegations while the Chairsteam and the Media Team got ready for a long night of resolution typing.
Session’s picture is finally here. All participants – Delegates, Chairpersons, Media Team and Organisers are in Laax together.
Today it was all about Committee Work again. The majority of the day consisted of intense debates but again and a lot of the committees had the opportunity to talk with an expert on their topic either in person or via Skype. It was a great benefit for the delegates to interact with experts in the field and what they learnt in those talks was usually part of the later discussions.
