Die Botschafter auf Instagram
Die Botschafter kommunizieren in weiten Teilen über Instagram. Ihre Profile heißen „IYDamassador“ oder „IJTambassador“ oder „JIJambassador“ – jeweils mit der Landeskennung.
Um die Vorfreude der Jugendlichen auf den Internationalen Jugendtag anzufachen, lassen sich die Botschafter verschiedene Foto-Wettbewerbe und Aktionen einfallen. So kann jeder mitmachen und eigene Fotos veröffentlichen sowie den Hashtags #ijt2019 #neuapostolisch #hierbinich #iyc2019 #newapostolic #hereiam folgen.
Die Botschafter können auch persönlich eingeladen werden, an Aktionen der Jugendlichen in ihren Gebietskirchen teilzunehmen und davon zu berichten.
