Our City, Our World
August 2014, young people from the UK (FODIP) and France (Coexister) – Christians, Muslims, Jews and those of no faith – came together in the beautiful surroundings of Ammerdown, Somerset, sponsored by the EU’s Youth in Action Programme. Participants looked at issues of identity and citizenship. Of particular interest was the concept of laïcité and how or whether this impacts on religious identity. We also looked at how global issues such as Israel/Palestine affect cross-communal relations.
