During the conference a group of activists of the FADFED team introduced in a very creative way (the video will be soon available)  the results of the analysis presented by Dr. Sami Hourani and an exhibition was setted up just outside the conference room, showing all the process and the methodology of the research. A lot of young people got interest about FADFED and most of them wished to be volunteer in the next events.
