MIDDLE EAST COMMUNITY PROGRAM

We offer university students and young workers (cooperatives, officials of public bodies and international bodies, employees and managers responsible for commercial / marketing activities, for journalists, international business enthusiasts) an 18-day experience scheduled every year at the end of August early September, useful for getting to know and immerse yourself in the reality of the Middle East.

The aim is to inform about the political and social contrasts affecting the region, but above all to bring together the points of contact, experiences of unity and sharing. Through the meeting with university professors, journalists, religious leaders, managers of cultural projects and social workers, you can have a perspective on important places from a historical and religious point of view for the three main monotheistic religions and on the main places affected by the conflict.

The program is divided into three interconnected dimensions:

Territorial and cultural dimension

Numerous visits are organized to discover and get to know the area. Numerous field trips are planned (in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron, Sebastia, Jericho, Galilee …), visits to culturally and historically significant places, thanks to which social, political and religious issues are directly addressed.

Historical-political dimension

The participants attend lectures and meetings concerning the history and the current socio-political context of this complex reality to deepen the historical-political dimension of this Earth, a crossroads for centuries of peoples and nations.

Social dimension, works and projects

The program offers visits to charitable works and social, educational and cultural projects. The meeting with these initiatives will be an opportunity to discover the importance of the ancient and articulated Christian presence in the Middle East, which has always been at the service of the population, as well as recall experiences and testimonies of coexistence.
