#FreeInterrail: Saving Europe by travelling
BY VINCENT-IMMANUEL HERR
@ VOL 32
ON FEB 06, 2017
Imagine yourself turning 18 and finding a personalised letter from the European Union in your mailbox. In it: a voucher to travel Europe. Your life will change! Europe is facing many problems - a lot of them have to do with people not knowing or understanding each other.
Imagine what a Europe we could build together, if all future generations were enabled to explore and experience European cultural diversity and beauty first-hand. #FreeInterrail advocates for just that.
In this presentation Vincent-Immanuel Herr invites us to join the movement and make sure that all EU youth are empowered to become Europeans out of experience.

A Word from Vanessa
We're posting the following message we received from PechaKucha Night in Christchurch organizer Vanessa Coxhead, to reassure any friends or family who have been trying to get in touch with her. We were certainly relieved to hear that she was safe and sound.Thanks for all the kind messages via email over the past 24 hours... it's been a very surreal experience but Jessica and I are safe. As are the people we work with. I haven't heard from Richard yet but I hope he is fine with his family... Richard... let us know when you can. At this stage there's not too much that we can do. We are staying with family, staying aware and keeping occupied as much as we can waiting for notification of anything we can do once search and rescue have completed the task at hand. We were in the central city when the quake hit and got out of there as soon as we could. We will keep people updated... Facebook has been a great tool for communicating en masse that so feel free to 'friend' me! You'll be seeing the news coverage and the wonderful work that many brave people are doing in the city so let's hope that we receive positive news as the day starts to end. This is probably the best way to keep updated on the situation. Any help that can be offered in due course will be greatly accepted so we'll keep in touch. For now, communication is the key so let's do what we're good at! Lots of love Vanessa, Jess and all those you know in Christchurch Update: And please see this post for info on where you can send donations for aid and reconstruction efforts in Christchurch.
Video from PKN Hyderabad
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsdCnz_eAps Here's a video look at a recent PechaKucha Night in Hyderabad -- we're assuming it must be from February's Vol. 7. It finishes with a teaser for the upcoming Vol. 8, which is set for March 31.
Letters from Poland
From the Polish city of Koszalin, we heard tell of some changes in the wind. It began with a correspondence saying Gall Podlaszewski (PKN Koszalin founding organizer) would be taking himself and his new family back to Weimar, Germany -- upward and onward to new things. Gall went into detail, in this very heartfelt post, on the past, present, and future of PKN Koszalin (Weronika Teplicka will take the helm as PKN city organizer). We couldn't help but be moved by this tale from another continent. Best of luck to Gall and those of Koszalin!
Fresh from Tokyo
Today we have some fresh content coming from Tokyo, as we add the last two presentations from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 98 -- you can watch all of them on the event page, and also check out a gallery of photos taken by Michael Holmes. First up is graphic designer Shiho Yokoyama with her presentation about handwritten fonts, and then Jean Snow (that's me) talks about he's been up to since moving to Asia 15 years ago. Another Tokyo connection comes in the form of today's "Presentation of the Day," by Don Kratzer, talking about kaiju.

Rockin' in the Free World
"We learned so many lessons, not just about playing on the stage but also about each other. We learned how very strong our friendship is compared to others." In Rockin' in the Free World from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 127, local rocker and bassist for the independent Tokyo-based 3-piece band "Tits, Tats, and Whiskers", Astrid Sison shares some of the trials, tribulations, wonders, and joys of fearlessly rocking the stage, self-recording and releasing, touring the world, and being a part of a band of friends with a shared musical vision. Sison's charisma comes through as she touches on the hard work and passion that she and her bandmates pour into their musical aspirations. No doubt, these rockers are living the dream!
Freeing Your Mind Through Freestyle
“I am the artist, the skateboard is my stencil and the world is my sketchbook.” In Freeing Your Mind Through Freestyle from PechaKucha Night El Paso Vol.13, Jacob Whitt, a 23-year-old professional freestyle skateboarder shared his passion for the art of freestyle skateboarding. Skateboarders know the feeling of freedom when they finally begin the trick, the trick that makes our world no longer run in seconds, but in milliseconds. In that moment when nothing else matters, when your heart is set free, your body is moving and your mind is trying to absorb the myriad of amazing feelings that overwhelm, up until the trick is over - and it is then time for the next one.
Presenter Bio: Fredy
Fredy is Congolese by nationality, but since 2014 has been in exile in Malawi. His family values of education and service for humanity led him to dedicate his efforts to fight for a noble cause: denouncing the human rights abuses in the Congo. Since coming to Malawi Fredy has experienced life in a refugee camp. Discouraged by the multiple legal, socio-economic, socio-cultural, and psychological bounderies that refugees are faced with, Fredy and his brother saw enormous potential in the youth at the camp and founded Salama Africa in 2014. Only two years later, Salama Africa has promoted youth who were nominated vice-champions in a national-wide dance competition, youth who won the Malawi’s Got Talent competition, and have attracted attention of American filmmakers who produced a documentary about their work. This has been a renaissance of Fredy's desire to serve, and also a fresh start for the youth who are developing their potential and living just some of their dreams. Forced, and forged, Fredy has experienced many new beginnings.
