The World Youth Parliament (WYP) is a permanent forum for dialogue and preparation of proposals, where young people from all over the world, from different cultures and religions, reflect and compare their ideas about crucial issues of personal and social coexistence, in order to present to the world ways of restoring humanity based on their personal commitment.
The spirit of the WYP is based on the model of the person, relationship, union and community that we find in the teachings and in the message that Jesus has transmitted to us through the Gospels.
The great witnesses of peace of different religions and cultures are also our references.
WYP’s specific goal is promoting peace through a concrete form of dialogue
This concrete form of dialogue is meant to create true communal decision-making, and, from there, reach proposals that are within the reach of a young person, for the restoration of our wounded humanity. At the same time, it has an educational and formative dimension, in that it seeks to have a creative environment in which the capacity for reflection and expression is developed.
It is a project also designed to create a network among all those entities that share this same mission.
Its promoter is IdenteYouth, an international non-profit organization founded by Fernando Rielo in 1975, and dedicated to educating young people and children in values.
Society presents us with numerous challenges. We have to ask ourselves the following:
In our search for meaning and transcendence,
often frantic and shallow, what awareness do we have of our origin and our destiny?
AGAINST GENDER VIOLENCE, RACISM, XENOPHOBIA AND THE CULTURE OF DEATH,
How can we defend life and transmit and grow in the fundamental respect for each human being?
BEFORE INDIFFERENCE, INSENSIBILITY AND GROWING EVASION,
How is it possible to promote the sense of responsibility, from our personal and social commitment?
GROW IN DIALOGUE, SOLIDARITY, SERVICE.
How can we grow in dialogue, solidarity, service, dedication, equitable distribution, and access to material, ethical and spiritual goods, to contrast an existence dominated by aggressiveness, individual interests and the will to power?
What form of convivence can dissolve the sense of sadness and loneliness that we also surprisingly find among the youngest?
