With the framework of the Conference of the International Secretariat of Christian Students convening in Amman on October 6-12, with the participation of delegation youths from 20 countries worldwide, a seminar has been held at the American University of Madaba (AUM) on “The Role of Education and Interfaith Dialogue in the Preservation of the Environment and Building More Peaceful Societies.”

AUM President Dr. Nabil Ayoub noted that this meeting constitutes an opportunity to enhance communication skills, to build a network of relationships that deepen common interests, and to play a role in activating intellectual thinking so as to build safer and more peaceful societies.

Stressing that youths are a source of enlightenment who have altruism and love for the common good, he addressed the youths saying: “You are the cornerstone of a prosperous future. Do not allow the hesitancy, fear of development, and keeping up with everything novelty waste your energies for you have to open up and activate patterns of dialogue. The future is yours so try to make the best of it.”

Member of the Upper House of Parliament Haifa Najjar gave a presentation on “The role of education in building peace and sustainable development in societies.” Director of Caritas Jordanian Wael Suleiman gave a presentation on "Opportunities for Building a Culture of Peace and Dialogue".

In the second session, Director of Public Relations and International Cooperation at the Department of Fatwa Sheikh Hassan Abu Arqoub gave a presentation on the role of religions in promoting the values of peace and cooperation among peoples. Spiritual Advisor of the Christian Youths in the Middle East Fr. Yousef Salloum also gave a presentation on the role of youths in instilling spiritual, human and moral values in societies.
