Flashmob-Winner Was Held in Sumy
On September 8, 2014 more than 300 people gathered together on the square near the Manufacture shopping centre in Sumy to show everyone modern youth of Ukraine – active, athletic, conscious!
In a citywide flashmob called Hymn of Youth took part babies with their mothers, preschool children, teenagers and students. Each participant played a special role: kids drew, juniors practiced extreme sports, students danced, musicians played, bikers rode…
Conducted the large-scale event the Centre for Social and Economic Research and Academic Mobility, who won with their Hymn of Youth project (grant amount is 50 000 UAH) in the competition for creation of memorable flashmob from the Good Deeds International Charity Foundation within the Smile Makes Everyone Happier program.
We wanted to create an anthem of youth and its visualization, that would show state of mind, culture and values of today’s young people, – say the organizers.
The project became useful, first of all, to the young Ukrainians who received their anthem, as well as to their parents, who were able to better understand values of the younger generation. As a part of the flashmob was filmed a video for the song Hymn of Youth! by the Sumy rock band ETSETERA.
