Form a new generation of peacebuilders and architects. With this objective, next Friday, April 19, 6,000 students, teachers and school leaders from the National Network of Schools for Peace will meet with Pope Francis in the Paul VI Hall of the Vatican. Along with them will be university professors, local administrators and representatives of civil society who are signatories of the “Assisi Pact” for peace education.

The meeting of the students with the Pope is part of a civic education program called “Let’s transform the future. For peace with attention” and constitutes a stage on the path that will lead to the realization, on May 25 and 26, of the first World Children’s Day. The reasons and program of the meeting will be illustrated in a press conference to be held on Wednesday, April 17 in Rome, at 11:00 a.m., in the Auditorium of the Convent of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, Via San Teodoro 42, Rome.

During the press conference, the first results of the survey on “Youth and the Future” carried out in Italian schools before the UN “Future Summit” will also be presented. The following speakers will take part in the press conference: Fabiana Cruciani, director and coordinator of the National Network of Peace Schools; Father Enzo Fortunato, coordinator of World Children’s Day; and Flavio Lotti, director of the National Network of Peace Schools. Students from the Liceo Artístico Via di Ripetta in Rome, accompanied by Professor Roberto Scognamillo, and from the Istituto Comprensivo “G. Milanesi” in Rome, accompanied by Professor Chiara Atanasio.

    A Message
    To the All-India Students Energy Parliament held on 25 February, 2016 at Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala in India.

    “If sons and daughters misbehave with their parents, students are indiscipline towards teachers, youth laugh at religious preachers and agitate against rulers and political leaders, we must have doubt on faulty characters of these elders rather than our youngsters

    Youth and peace are synonymous. Youth is for peace. Peace is fully supported, protected, safe and secure in the hands of youth. They need only healthily examples of elders, particularly parents, teachers, religious preachers, rulers and political leaders, judges and bureaucrats, and total education in place of partial education for good governance and to be peaceful.”
