British Prime Minister Gordon Brown (in the background) recently spoke with college students–among them SU London students Don Desawade, Haley Kanor, Nathan Muller and Celina Tousignant–outside his official residence, 10 Downing St. in London, as part of the 10-day Journey of Understanding program. The four SUL students served as the only American representatives in a diverse group of participants hailing from Europe, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.
The Journey of Understanding program is a unique excursion that brings together 24 young people (ages 16-23) from the United States, United Kingdom, Indonesia, Israel, and Palestinian Territories. This is the third Journey of Understanding in which SUL students have participated, but the first since Syracuse University and sponsoring organization Encompass Trust entered an official partnership. The next Journey of Understanding is set for November 2008 and will be held in Scotland in honor of the 20th anniversary of the Pan Am 103 tragedy in Lockerbie.
