About 40 participants took part in the lunch event co-organised by Justice&Peace Europe in Brussels and had an exchange with young people from Medellín (Colombia) and with Fr. Rafael Bejarano sdb, Director de Ciudad Don Bosco (CBD) in Medellín. The Salesians of Don Bosco are helping former child soldiers to re-integrate into society. They shared this example of good practice of placing the human persons at the very centre and allowing them to become builders of peace in the Colombian society.
On 27 January 2017, Justice & Peace Europe organised a Prayer & Breakfast at the Secretariat of COMECE in Brussels on the theme of Pope Francis' Message for the World Day of Peace "Nonviolence: a style of politics for peace". The event gathered around 40 participants from the EU institutions, churches and civil society. The President of Justice & Peace Europe, Mgr. Jean-Claude Hollerich, offered a reflection on this theme which you can read here.
