In July 2013, Diakonia and our partner organization Sabeel will gather young people between 18-35 from all around the world to Israel and Palestine for the youth festival Moving Mountains - Reshaping the World. Together, we will address important human issues, through both faith-based and secular lenses, in a fresh and active way.
An action oriented festival
What is unique about the youth festival is its focus on action. The daytime work will center itself around activism, encouraging the participants to make a difference within the theme of the day. The ambition is to create miracles each day, by making changes that will be of importance to the beneficiaries in the long run.

What makes Moving Mountains - Reshaping the World unique is how it creates an opportunity for young people to combine deep contextual understanding with practical, holistic response to the pressing global challenges in our time. The festival strives not only to be a forum for an active young generation, but also to be the springboard of annual youth festivals within the theme of development, sustainablitity and change.
