As in the previous years, the event offered the opportunity to show the commitment and action of New Humanity, as well as of the other Catholic-inspired NGOs and the Holy See at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, to young people of the focolare Movement (from which New Humanity draws its principles and inspiration) who are at the International Center of Montet, Switzerland, for a period of formation and study.

The group of youth visited the Palais des Nations and then actively participated to the special conference organized for them. Jorge M. Dias Ferreira, main representative of New Humanity in Geneva and moderator of the event, welcomed them personally.

The conference also saw the participation of Marco Desalvo, President of New Humanity, and of representatives from the Holy See and other Catholic-inspired NGOs at the Human Right Council at the UN in Geneva.
