Bossey seminar for church leaders and young people:

This seminar will take place in 5-15 August 2019 at the Ecumenical Institute Bossey, profiting from the spirit of Bossey and the experience of the Ecumenical Institute and the proximity of the World Council of Churches, the YMCA and YWCA offices in Geneva.

The seminar is designed as opportunity for church leaders and young persons to equip each other for Christian witness in a multi-cultural and multi-faith world in inter-generational dialogue.

The multi-cultural and multi-faith realities Christians live in today and a world of post-modern values and concepts are challenging the public witness and pastoral accompaniment of pastors, congregations and churches almost everywhere. In reaction to increasing plurality xenophobia, racism and nationalist populism are growing. This is the world of young people that they know and experience and it is also the context for leadership decisions that respond to the situation.
