The coordination of activities undertaken by Greek origin youths in Argentina and the development of the SAE Central and South America Region Youth Network, the teaching of the Greek language and the promotion of Greek culture, as well as the more active participation of youths in the Greek Community Boards were a few of the issues under discussion in the meeting of young expatriates from across Argentina held recently in Cordoba.
In the meeting hosted by the local Hellenic Community with the support of SAE Central and South America Region participated roughly 70 young men and women representing Hellenic Communities from across Argentina as well as cities that do not have organized Hellenic communities. Indicative of the interest displayed by local authorities in the citizens of Greek origin was the support they were offered by the Cordoba Province Local Government Committee.
The goal of the meeting was for the youths of Greek origin to get acquainted with each other to be able to work more effectively for Hellenism in Argentina, mentions a statement issued by SAE Central and South America Region.
On the last day of the meeting, participants enjoyed Greek food and folk music and dances from different parts of Greece, while they also agreed to hold their next meeting in the border city of Mendoza.
