Youth in the ecumenical movement

This project promotes the active participation of young adults in the life of churches and the ecumenical movement, helping them to network, and enabling them to express their concerns and visions.
Youth in the ecumenical movement

Youth pre-assembly celebration, 2006

Youth are the future of the church, and they are great advocates for Christian unity. The WCC wants to empower young Christians to liven up the ecumenical movement: as interns at the WCC offices in Geneva, as stewards at major ecumenical events, or as commissioners liaising between youth, churches, WCC governing bodies and WCC programmes.
