A meeting of men and women, European citizens, entrepreneurs, young people, priests and pastors. The aim: a continental unity respecting diversity and allowing for greater openness beyond the borders of the European Union and of Europe. Innumerable greetings from public figures both ecclesiastic and political.

A message from young people: “The continent we want”.

Statements by politicians, charismatic leaders, Bishops of different Churches amongst others. Many testimonies of life. Music, dancing, art performances. A pact of reconciliation and brotherhood. A concluding message proclaimed together to continue the journey. A united Europe for a united world.
