It is now very close: on Sunday 10 September the International Meeting 'The Audacity of Peace' opens in Berlin: three days of dialogue and prayer for peace of the world religions together with representatives from the world of politics and culture.

Many sorrows and many hopes are written in this city full of history: the world war, totalitarianism, the Shoah, division, the Wall. But also the peaceful revolution, through which that wall has fallen.

In Berlin, the audacity of religions to tear down the great wall that divides the world today, which is that of war, will emerge.

The programme includes an opening assembly on Sunday afternoon, September 10th, followed by 20 forums on Monday 11th and the morning of Tuesday 12 on various topics - the ecological crisis, migrants, inter-religious dialogue, democracy in the contemporary age, globalisation, disarmament and artificial intelligence.
The final ceremony will take place in front of the Brandenburg Gate on September 12th afternoon. A message from Pope Francis is expected and the world religions' appeal for peace will be read out. Testimonies from countries at war, such as Ukraine and Afghanistan, are also planned.
We all want to be there: those who will participate in attendance and all those who, although from afar, will take part in the virtual event.
