Project Period: Contact: Department: Programme: Theme:
19 Nov 06 - 23 Nov 06 Asia-Europe Foundation Education Department ASEM Youth Dialogues Education

Navarra (Spain)


This youth dialogue involved 44 youth representatives from religious organisations and networks in 26 ASEM countries, as well as experts in inter-religious dialogue. Participants exchanged views and personal experiences based on their respective religious and spiritual traditions. The objective of this event was to expand Asia-Europe youth co-operation in interfaith dialogue, and to generate new ideas for strengthening co-operation under the ASEM framework.

At the end of the dialogue, participants reached a consensus that was reflected in the Javier Declaration, which was approved on 22 November 2006. This declaration aimed to seek support for the further development of youth interfaith co-operation between Asia and Europe, and it was submitted to ASEM governments for their consideration.
