Youth Summit


Stemming from its belief that the world’s 1.8 billion young people are a force for global transformation, the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity will host its inaugural Fraternity Youth Summit in July 2022, in Rome, Italy.

The HCHF Fraternity Youth Summit will convene 100 youth from different countries around the world to inspire, engage, and empower the next generation of leaders to become voices of human fraternity in their local communities.

The Summit will provide students the opportunity to connect and collaborate with fellow young leaders and changemakers, as well as learn from high-level experts, world and religious leaders, and prominent activists.

Inspired by the Document on Human Fraternity and the papal encyclical ‘Fratelli Tutti,’ the Summit will include in-person lectures and labs that prepare students to execute a project related to human fraternity, peace, and coexistence.

The Summit will center on the following four pillars: Dialogue, Justice, Education, and Legislation.

The primary goals of the Summit are to:

– Create a global platform for fraternity, peaceful coexistence, and interreligious dialogue
– Mentor, motivate and mobilize the next generation of leaders to become voices of human fraternity and change in their own communities
– Kickstart a global youth movement, empowered with the necessary tools to take action and make an impact on solving human fraternity challenges
