MECC in the International Meeting "Peace with No Borders”, Sant’Egidio – Madrid
The MECC, represented by Secretary General Associate Michael Spiro, participated in the 33rd international meeting entitled "Peace with No Borders", convening in Madrid- Spain, from September 15 to 17, 2019.
The meeting, which was organized by the Community of Sant’Egidio and the Archdiocese of Madrid, gathered more than 400 religious personalities from 60 countries of five continents and thousands of pilgrims.
The organizers sought to promote an open dialogue between representatives of the world’s major religions, intellectual leaders and representatives of civil society, with the conviction that today more than ever, religions are called to work together for peace, conflict prevention and dialogue to rebuild human fraternity, in a divided world, with the increasing exclusionary nationalisms, xenophobic and violent rhetoric.
To this end, MECC has actively participated in the workshops and round tables held over the past two days.
