36th General Meeting 2007

More than forty EYCE Member Organisations’ delegates, partners, national and international guests gathered together from the 22nd to the 28th of October for the 36th General Meeting in Prali, Italy.
The meeting in Prali brought significant changes to the life of EYCE. The delegates of EYCE Member organisations reviewed the work undertaken by the Council in the last two years, and shaped EYCE’s policies and priorities for the next two: a renewed commitment and deeper reflection on economic justice and broadening the arena of EYCE’s work on inter-religious dialogue to reach a truly multi-religious platform are among the thematic directions given by EYCE Members.

Delegates also urged EYCE to clarify and improve its cooperation with its ecumenical partners, and in particular with the Conference of European Churches, and sought to explore new ways to take up the challenges of a changing economical, social and political situation in Europe and in the Churches.

The General Meeting also meant the replacement of three ExCo members. EYCE wishes to thank Janine Beier, Smaranda Dochia and Mónika Fedor for all the hard work undertaken for the Council, and welcomes on board Petter Normann Dille (Norway, Lutheran), Inka Marja Tuulikki Lindroos (Finland, Lutheran) and Faye Skyvalaki (Greece, Orthodox).

The General Meeting was hosted by EYCE Italian Member organisation Italian Protestant Youth Federation (FGEI) in Agape International Ecumenical Centre.
