Let’s Bridge – Exchanges and Seminars
A project by the young for the young
Over the entire duration of the Let’s Bridge Project, numerous seminars and international exchanges were organized to train and send out into the network the youngsters who participated actively in carrying out the various project activities.

The youth event for”Together for ‘Europe”
“Together for Europe” is the network of communion among 300 Christian Communities and Movements which aims to “give Europe back its soul”. Just before the big event of May 2012 in Brussels, 30 young students from several Christian movements, of different denominations, from Germany, England, Ireland, Italy, Hungary and Belgium came together near Louvain (Belgium) to enliven, from 9th to 14th May, the workshop “Face2Faith in Europe“. As part of the Let’s Bridge Project, the activity saw the participants tackle matters of faith, the media and European citizenship. Nevertheless, opportunities to engage in sport, tourism and tastings of the fine local beer were not lacking!
