Madaba (Agenzia Fides) - The delegations of boys and girls, who are taking part in the final phase of the World Youth Forum for Peace in Jordan, organized by Caritas Jordan and hosted at the American University of Madaba, come from at least 30 countries around the world. The final phase of the initiative, which began on 17 September, includes several exhibitions and concerts by youth groups from Armenia, Argentina, the Philippines and Italy. But the stated purpose of the concluding phase of the event is to share and exchange local, regional and international experiences and initiatives focusing on issues of peace, coexistence and reconciliation with the identification of proposals and projects that can be implemented in the areas – starting from the Middle East - devastated in recent times by sectarian conflicts and clashes.
