ASEM Youth Dialogue: 2nd Asia-Europe Youth Interfaith Dialogue

23 - 27 June 2008
Bandung, Indonesia

Following the success of the 1st Asia-Europe Youth Interfaith Dialogue held in Spain in 2006, ASEF is preparing the 2nd Asia-Europe Youth Interfaith Dialogue, as part of its ASEM Youth Dialogue series. The meeting will take place in Lembang, West Java, Indonesia in June 2008, with the support and commitment of the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Youth as well as the Central Board of Nahdlatul Ulama (PBNU).

The aim of the annual ASEM Youth Dialogue is to provide a valuable channel through which youth in ASEM countries could exchange perspectives on priority themes in the ASEM agenda. Focus is given to the role and participatory nature of youth in the ASEM process, particularly with regard to coming up with solutions to identified common challenges.

In this case the main theme will be the further development of closer youth interfaith co-operation between Asia and Europe, following the example given by the previous Interfaith Dialogue and its valuable result: The Javier Declaration.

Please find the Fact Sheet, the Tentative Programme, the Call of Application and the Participant Application Form in the Project Info Box.

For further information, please contact Ms Katerina Ragoussi.

Deadline: 25 May 2008
