“The United World Week was truly a success and it’s really special. It’s one of those activities that is more in line with the charisma.” [Chiara Lubich, 13/12/2002]
The 2014 edition of the United World Week (UWW) will be held from 1st to 11th May.
The title of this year’s UWW is “Bridging cultures” and the wide variety of activities and actions carried out by the Youth for a United World (Y4UW) will focus on reciprocal concrete love and underlining the priority of relationships.
A particular focus will be given to Africa, a continent which is full of colours, cultures and challenges, through mutual sharing and an intercultural exchange with the different African cultures.
On 1st May at 1:00 pm (Italian time) there will be a worldwide linkup (via streaming) marking the opening of UWW 2014. Shortly, we will send you the internet link to the 1st May event.
The central event of the United World Week will be “Sharing with Africa”, a work-site of reciprocity which will be held from 27th April to 4th May at the Mariapolis Piero, Nairobi, Kenya.
More than one hundred young people are expected to participate: 50 from the African Continent and 50 from various parts of the world.
Attached, please find the programme of this work-site on fraternity.
On this occasion we will also launch the “Atlas of Fraternity”, the first United World Project document based on the collection of more than 800 fragments of fraternity.
It will be available online from 1st May on www.unitedworldproject.org and in hard copy from 1st September, 2014.
As usual, we wish to give great visibility to the United World Week and therefore, we are inviting you to post your activities and experiences on our Facebook page:

We take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Easter, and have a good United World Week!Y4UW Central Secretariat
