Zurich: The Tibetan Youth Association in Europe (TYAE) launched their Deine Stimme Entscheidet (Your Voice Decides) campaign last Saturday (September 25) in Zurich, Switzerland.
The campaign aims to educate the Tibetan diaspora in Europe about the importance of the upcoming 2011 Kalon Tripa (prime-ministerial) and Chitue (parliamentary) elections.
After a brief introduction to the structure and function of the Central Tibetan Administration, and profiles of each of the candidates, an open discussion was held which, according to the TYAE, quickly turned into a passionate debate. The event concluded with a mock election.
Over 50 young Tibetans from around Switzerland attended the event, which coincided with the launch of the campaign's German-language website http://www.deine-stimme-entscheidet.org
