We’re Listening Up!

This is an announcement from Shawna Foster, from the Unitarian Universalist Association’s International Office.– Ed.


International Young Adult Listening Project


If you’re a young adult living abroad, we want to hear from you! The International Office is conducting a listening project.

What’s a listening project? It’s when an interviewer spends time with a certain group of people with carefully developed questions to find out what is going on in their lives.

The International Office wants to listen to young adults to see what their lives are like and how Unitarian Universalism plays a part in it.


Through these interviews, we will better understand what your needs are as a young adult outside of the United States and can start organizing to meet common needs. As stories are told and published, it reveals that ours is a global movement that touches so many people’s lives.

Find out how we’re all in this together by signing up today!

If you’re interested, book Shawna Foster or email her at sfoster@uua.org.

    I’m not currently living abroad, but I worked in Germany for a while and was seriously looking into moving back to live for quite a while. The lack of a strong UU presence there was a major part of my decision to back away from making Germany my home. I’d be interested in being part of this conversation even if I’m not currently living abroad…

    We’re a family of 4 living in Cairo Egypt. There is no UU presence here, that I am aware of.

    Just too bad.
