Young Christians invited to participate in social media campaign for European Year of Youth

As part of the European Year of Youth 2022 [1] declared by the European Commission, the Conference of European Churches (CEC) in partnership with the World Student Christian Federation Europe [2] and the Ecumenical Youth Council in Europe [3] invites European Christian youth to contribute to a social media campaign titled United in Faith 2022 – through texts, images, art and poetry.

The campaign United in Faith 2022 aims to increase visibility of the younger generation in the ecumenical movement, exploring opportunities offered by the European Year of Youth.

The campaign will run on Facebook and Instagram for several weeks in autumn 2022.

The social media campaign will address numerous topics, such as what faith mean to youth, how churches impact the life of youth, communities and the European region. Reflections are also encouraged on relations between faith and politics, engagement with EU institutions, society and diversity, and the role of churches and religious communities in building peace.

Those interested to participate are encouraged to read the template [4] featuring examples, and send their contributions to youth@cec-kek.be [5] before 19 June 2022.
