Youth Forum 2012
Through the inspiration of the Justice and Peace Network of the Congregation, a Youth Forum took place in Seattle, Washington last summer from July 17th to 23rd. It gathered forty students from our secondary schools.
During a week filled with conferences as well as prayer or volunteer work with the organizations of the milieu, the young people were able to sensitize themselves to the great challenges of our affluent and consumer-oriented society.
Interdependence, the environment and water, trafficking of women and children, and immigration which had been the themes for the young people’s research during the school year, were the themes of our daily meetings.
