From September 18 to 24, 2023, young people aged 25-35, from the five shores of the Mediterranean, will meet in Marseille for a week of work on the major challenges posed by the Mediterranean for the construction of peace in the world.

Will be approached from different angles, the meeting of cultures, the dialogue of believers, shared ecological responsibilities and migratory movements. Mutual listening, taking into account the othernesses that form the Mediterranean base, the work of memories and the sacred duty of hospitality will thus be approached to open paths of peace and reconciliation.

Depending on the material means of each, costs will be covered by a Mediterranean solidarity network.
