17 April 2013

The Jerusalem event is a follow-up to the Genfest 2012, in Budapest, where 12,000 young people from all over the world gathered.

Why Jerusalem?

«What we really want –wrote The Youth for a United World – is to witness everywhere universal brotherhood, and immediately we thought of Jerusalem, a city of contrasts and divisions, and at the same time the cradle of a millenary culture, a weave of peoples and religions, called since its foundation to fulfil a project of peace».

The year of the Genfest was inaugurated on the 1st May 2012 with the motto “Let’s Bridge”. It was a year of dedicated to building bridges everywhere, in every corner of the globe.

This year, the 1st May 2013 in Jerusalem aims to be an important step in history, a significant moment in the realization of the worldwide project launched at the Genfest 2012:  the “United World Project”.

What’s the goal of this trip?
