"Harnessing the Creative and Innovative Capacities of Youth and Women for Peacebuilding" will engage participants in a dynamic experience of faith development as well as challenge them to positively respond to the universal call to holiness. Our world today more than ever before is faced with the challenge of overcoming the "faith divide" and the global citizenship divide in order to build the bridge of all bridges, the interreligious and international bridge that connects all humanity to God. The conference will create and promote interfaith collaboration and build bridges of trust, friendship and partnership among religiously diverse youth and provide a platform for local, national, regional and international collaboration.
The conference and workshops will be practical -- rich with inspiration, international experience, and how-to, face-to-face workshops. The participants will return home stronger with new partners and modern tools of communication for your homes, schools, and neighborhoods -- to heal cities, Nigeria, Africa, all humankind.
Sunrise into evening, we will practice a new quality of listening-to-learn, to heal and create a new life among diverse youth-leader of Nigeria and Africa. We will discover that "an enemy is one whose story we have not heard."
