We are the "Youth for a United World", and looking at the global situation and what is happening around the world, we feel the need and urgency to step in and do something about it. Driven by the experiences of many, we would like to propose a project to make an impact in our communities, in our country, in the institutions, in the social media and loudly declare, together with the whole Work of Mary, involving as many people as possible, that: ”WE WANT PEACE AND UNITY AMONG PEOPLES”.
Therefore, we propose to everyone to begin, as a first step, from 11 September 2015 to:
• Invade our social media with the motto #OPENYOURBORDERS, taking a personal or group photo, wearing a white shirt and a sign that says #OPENYOURBORDERS and post it on your facebook page and all the social networks and the page ‘Dialogue to unlock’ which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/dialoguetounlock.
• Offer on 11 September, or any other day of your choice, a meal for refugees. *
• Spread the attached Appeal. It can be presented in the coming months to International, national, regional or city institutions (UN, UNESCO, Head of state, parliaments, mayors, etc) and also to religious leaders.
• On the 11th of each month there will be a new Hashtag# in social media to spread the idea of the United World.
The path of the project, with will last for the next 6 months, will see, everywhere, the most varied activities, concrete actions for peace… It should have its greatest manifestation in March for Chiara Lubich's anniversary which this year will focus on Peace.
These are the first steps…
