Do you want to experience that every culture is a gift to the world? Are you ready to roll up your sleeves to help those who are underprivileged? Join us for the Hombre Mundo international workshop!
Every three years the Teens for Unity gather for this international workshop to learn to live the culture of fraternity in a global dimension, to get to know each other’s culture so as to love and respect the country of others as their own.
This workshop takes place in two phases. During the first week the young people, coming from various countries, work together in exploring a “culture of reciprocity”. Overcoming small or bigger differences of culture and history, everyone discovers bonds to build a network of brotherhood. The goal is that each participant becomes aware that he or she is a citizen of the whole world.
In the second week we move to various cities of the host country or in neighboring countries and we go “to the peripheries” to carry out actions of solidarity in the spirit of fraternity.
The 2014 Uomo Mondo Workshop took place in Argentina, in 2017 it was held in Eastern Europe (Croatia, Serbia, Poland). In 2020 it was going to be held in Africa (Kenya, Ivory Coast), but due to the pandemic it was postponed. Instead, in 2022 for the first time Hombre Mundo Worshop will truly be a worldwide meeting – a global event!!! The program is being prepared by young people from all over the world, who together want to grow in universal brotherhood and encourage each other with experiences of active and global citizenship.
