Teenagers from all over the world will come together next year to engage in multicultural and interreligious dialogue as part of a joint initiative of the international education organization World Ort and the Vatican.

 

 

The conference, which will be held in October 2018 in Buenos Aires, will allow 500 young people from all over the world, with different religions and socioeconomic backgrounds, to participate in an open, meaningful and multicultural dialogue with the overall aim of learning to respect the other.

 

Earlier this month, a historic agreement was signed at the Vatican in Rome between World Ort and the Pontifical International Law Foundation, Scholas Occurrentes, with Pope Francis in attendance.

"World Ort and Scholas share a common goal that is to make the world a better place through education," said Darío Werthein, Chairman of the Board of World Ort. "This collaboration will allow us to reach more places and for each and every one of the children to develop their potential, no matter where they come from."

 

"We see in this cooperation an important tool to promote tolerance worldwide," said World Ort CEO Avi Ganon.
