“WAYS OF PEACE”: our appointment in Jerusalem

The meeting in Jerusalem is the next step after Genfest 2012, where 12,000 young people gathered in Budapest from all over the world.

Why Jerusalem?
As Youth for a United World, our greatest desire is to witness universal brotherhood in every place we are. Therefore, how can we forget Jerusalem? It is a city of contrasts and divisions but also the cradle of an ancient culture, mingling of peoples and religions and ever since its existence, it is called to be a city of peace.

1st May 2012: we opened the Genfest Year with the slogan “Let’s Bridge”. Throughout this year we have devoted ourselves towards the ‘building of bridges’ in every corner of the planet.

1st May 2013: We want the meeting in Jerusalem to be a historical milestone and a significant moment in the implementation of the worldwide Project launched at Genfest 2012: “United World Project” (www.unitedworldproject.org).

What’s the purpose of the trip?

To build bridges of peace and reciprocity, putting into practice the golden rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

We long to meet you there!
