The slogan of WYR is 'Be friends, Best friends'. It means 'Best friends' are not just friends, but friends beyond prejudice and differences who understand each other. Participants should keep this in mind from the start to the end of WYR and 'Be friends' with others and eventually be 'Best friends'.
