Underwrite a truce

As host of the 2006 Winter Olympics, the Youth Policy and International Cooperation and Peace department of the City of Torino invites youths from all over the world to participate in the “Young words happening”. The event will take place on 22nd – 24th September, 2005 and will consist of three days of dialogue on key issues of access to information, economic development, and cultural integration in the context of the Olympic Truce Torino 2006.

The purpose of the event, which will engage 2,000 Italian and foreign youth, is to experiment with a truce, a suspension of conflicts between people of opposing opinions, cultures, and faiths, allowing listening, dialogue and reflection to prevail. This will be a unique opportunity to listen to other people’s reasons.
