New Humanity concludes a 2017 particularly rich in activities.
Wishing you all a more positive 2018, we invite you to relive with us the events that particularly characterized the last year, by visiting our activities page with the 2017 updates.
Tomaso Comazzi represented New Humanity during the presentation of the Freedom of Educatio Index 2016. The event has been presented by Mr Antoine Renard, President of the European Federation of Catholic Family Associations (FAFCE); Mr Alfred Fernandez, General Director of OIDEL NGO; Mr Ignasi Grau, Official Representantive from the same NGO.
Nancy Avila and Abraham Arzola, two Youth for a United World – the youth branch of New Humanity – represented this NGO at the 6th international forum of NGOs in official partnership with UNESCO. The forum's theme was “From promotion to construction of peace with NGOs”.
In front of representatives of 50 NGOs, the two Mexican youths presented the various activities that Youth for a United World spearheads worldwide for the promotion of peace.
300 Movement and Communities, from various Churches in different European Countries gathered for this 4th General Meeting of the "Together for Europe" Network in Munich. The number of the members constantly grew during the previous events in Studtgard (2004 and 2007) and Brussels (2012) and the current edition gathered more than 1500 participants in order to discuss about Integration and Recounciliation, Solidarity, Sustainability and Environment Care, Dialogue between Christians and Muslims, Family and Marriages, Economy,...
The Focolari Movement - sharing the same fundamental values of New Humanity - is on of the promoter of this initiative.
After one year, the final evaluation for the Youth Dice Project is totally positive.
This Project has been co-financed by the European Union in the contest of the Youth in Action Program and it involved around 250 young people of which 123 are disvataged.
Youth Dice promoted Youth Initiative, Exchanges and Seminars, in order to familiarise the young participants with the values of a common Europe and establishing a stable network at the European level. A key result has been the mobilisation and empowerment of young people in the EU to become driving forces in their own personal and professional development contributing to social cohesion and inclusive growth.
"Link Culture - A path for Peace" is the title of the main event of the United World Week (UWW) 2016. This year, the main event has been organised at the Equador's capital city, some weeks after that a tremendous hearthquake hit the Country. It has been a unique occasion to "ask again with a renovate strenght unity and peace for our people".
As usual, the Youth for a United World - the Youth section of New Humanity - promoted also this year all over the world a long list of initiatives aimed to make visible a growing culture of fraternity. The topic of this year was interculture: to develop the dialogue among the different cultures and to aknowledge that all the human beings are equal in dignity.
"EducationandUnity" (EdU) organised a three-days-long meeting in order to present "an Inclusive and Solidar Education". New Humanity is very active into promoting at the higher level a whole education of the human being since the very beginning and consequently many of its experts contributed to this event.
