Youth UPF

Youth Forum on Global Citizenship and Faith

Vienna, Austria - Youth in Vienna came together on Oct. 14, 2014 to discuss the role of religions in a pluralistic Europe and a globalized world.

The moderator of the evening, Anja Weiskopf, gave a short introduction about the activities of UPF and a special greeting to both the new and well-known faces who joined the evening's activities. Inputs about the topic, "Global Citizenship and My Faith," were given by young religious representatives Jennifer Miftaroska, Marijan Oršolić, Deacon Athanasius Buk and Matthias Grümayer, who shared their thoughts based on two questions: How does your faith help or hinder your engagement with people of other cultures and religions? and how does your faith inform your sense of responsibility in the global community?
