Vatican Youth Symposium 2017

YOUTH AS STEWARDS OF OUR PLANET FOR A MORE FRATERNAL AND SUPPORTIVE SOCIETY

On 13-15 October 2017, the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS) and SDSN Youth will convene the 2017 Vatican Youth Symposium bringing together young leaders from a variety of disciplines to Casina Pio IV, Vatican City. 

This year’s theme will prompt participants to consider how youth, by building on values like fraternity and solidarity, can envision and create a form of progress that—in the words of Pope Francis—is “healthier, more human, more social and more integral.”
