The first 'What Really Matters' Congress for the Youth taking place in Asturias is right around the corner. Taking place on Thursday, November 9, the congress will focus on bringing universal values to young people. The event, which has already been held in over eleven cities around the world, gathering over 60,000 people, is arriving to Asturias thanks to the 16 de 24 Foundation and the sponsorship of ONTIER.
In an interview for Asturian newspaper La Nueva España, Carolina Barrantes, Project Manager at the What Really Matters Foundation, noted that over 2000 people has already signed up for the event. 'We can barely believe the response we're having, but what's really gratifying is realising that the people attending the event is really learning something that changes their lives.'
This time the WRM foundation meeting will have first level Spanish entrepreneurs as speakers, including Jaime Garrastazu, Co-Founder and CMO at Pompeii Brand (Spanish online sneakers shop) who also took part in ONTIER's #wannachangemylife campaign; Miriam Fernández, Spanish swimming champion, actress and singer; and Paco Arango, President of the Aladina Foundation, Director, Scriptwriter and Producer. 'We always make sure that the speakers' stories focus on different values. This time the values they're trying to spread are optimism, solidarity and entrepreneurship.'
