World Humanist Youth Conference "Humanism, intercultural dialogue and young active
citizenship: the connection", 8-14 July, Paris, France
IHEYO is proud to present its fourth annual world conference for young humanist and
human rights activists. This time the conference will be held in Paris, France in
cooperation with La Ligue de l'Enseignement. The conference will be held from 8 July
to 14 July and will focus on 'Interculturalism' and active citizenship. Based on our
experience of our previous conferences, this conference will also be a mix of
cultural visits, practical training, in-depth debate and stimulating keynote
speeches. It has proven to be a good formula! We want all participants to work
toghether in drawing up new resolutions and opinions.
Interculturalism is at stake in Europe. In what way can we, as humanist youth,
promote an 'inclusive', democratical and social Europe?
In this meeting we provide the participants with an introduction to the basic
concepts and practices of intercultural youth involvement, such as cultural
diversity and inter life stance dialogue. Further, this meeting will focus on the
process of networking and exchanging experiences in youth activities in practice and
encourage reflection on intercultural learning
The conference aims to bring together more than 60 youth aged 18 to 35 years from
Europe and elsewhere. IHEYO co-organises this conference with the French 'la Ligue
d'Enseignement': http://www.laligue.org .
We expect the fee to be between 50 and 200 Euro including accommodation and food

information will be available also about possible funding for travel.
