The International Youth Seminar on Human Rights and Freedom of Religion and Beliefs 19 – 26 August 2008, Amman - Jordan Supported by: EURO-MED Youth Programme (Amman Office) International Association for Religious Freedom (IARF) Religious Freedom Young Adult Network (RFYN) Youth Spirit Centre (YSC)
We are 46 young people from 26 countries came to share experiences, deepen knowledge and understanding on the main issues that matters to us but most importantly, we were gathered to find solutions and way forward.
Our cultures and identities were the foundations of the encounter which enriches our learning and the way we see the world.
For 7 memorable days, we live and let live, built a team that transcend beyond political, socio-cultural and religious boundaries.
In no time, we realized that we have more in common than those that divides us- the essence of humanity!
We’ve learned and discovered how the International Instruments and Mechanism works…
And came to understand our common history, shared our past and think of our common destiny which opened our minds and hearts.
WE have learned to listen deeply and communicate in many ways, built bridges and foster relationships through shared understanding. We searched for our common ground .
Believing that all is different, colorful and unique!
We’ve got idealism and strength but our elders are the depository of knowledge… and so we listen and share with them…
