Vatican Symposium for Young People, 15th-16th November 2014


Youth Against Prostitution & Human Trafficking in Vatican, 15-16 Nov. 2014
Pope Francis invited young people from all over the world, aged 18 to 25, who are already active in the fight against trafficking and prostitution, to take part in a symposium at the Casina Pio IV, headquarters of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, on 15-16 November 2014. The idea is to make them and other young people aware of the dangers of the “globalization of indifference” and, in particular, of the new forms of slavery.
We are happy to announce that RENATE will be collaborating in this initiative which is the first of its kind. There will be a few participants present in the Vatican on behalf of our Network. They will speak from the perspective of their country of origin and at the same time they will receive a training that will enable them to defend the human and Christian freedom of every human being all over the world. Another goal of this Symposium is to work together to identify the best practices to adopt which will finally eradicate this crime against humanity.
