A Common Word Among the Youth

Between 15th and 21st July 2019, ACWAY Forum 4 was held in Baku, Azerbaijan. Entitled “Baku Intercultural Youth Forum 2019: Interfaith in Action”, the international forum was the result of a partnership between ACWAY, Baku International Multiculturalism Center, Stirling Foundation, Young Friends of Azerbaijan and Youth Foundation of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Being the longest ACWAY conference so far, the partnership with Baku International Multiculturalism Center made it possible for participants to enjoy a 7-day fully funded program composed by the ACWAY conference and Baku International Multiculturalism Summer School. As a consequence, the 100 participants that attended the event had the chance to contextualize the concepts of multiculturalism and interfaith harmony into practice.

The full program was divided into two parts. In this post, you can see a little bit of what happened in the first three days of the forum, that took place at the Baku Congress Center.

During this first moment, our participants engaged in skills-based workshops and critical dialogue thinking around interfaith action, religion and conflict resolution, interfaith in diverse spaces and good practices and skills shared by the participants.
