Bringing together young people from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities, the theme of this year’s course is “People and Faith on the Move: Migration in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.” The distance learning component of the course runs from 8-26 July, followed by a residential period taking place 29 July-16 August.

Designed to address issues of religious diversity and intercultural collaboration in a society shaped by migration and globalization, the course targets a global demographic of young individuals (ages between 20 to 35) who are interested in and actively participating in interfaith dialogues. This includes religious leaders, students, laypeople, and professionals with an appropriate level of religious literacy, or experience in the realm of interfaith dialogue and engagement, particularly within the context of the three Abrahamic religions.

The deadline for applications for the 2024 edition is 7 April.
