International Colloquy of former YCW leaders on the 25th and 26th September 2016 in Aachen, Germany.

« The contribution of past YCW leaders to the reinforcement of the IYCW mouvement today and in the future »

A two-day colloquy will be held on 25th and 26th September 2016 gathering around sixty former YCW leaders from all over the world. It will coincide with the opening of the XIV International Council of the YCW in Aachen

The former members will listen to the present national and international leaders presenting the face of young people today, as well as the challenges faced by the present YCW. The former YCWers will bring and share the synthesis of their testimonies.

The testimonies from the continental delegates will not only describe what the movement brought into their lives, but also what, according to them, the YCW as an organization, brought to the worker and social movements, to the Church, to the society, and answering the question of whether it is still relevant today and will still be relevant tomorrow

The former leaders will reflect upon the contribution they can make to reinforce the movement today and in the future. They can create or multiply national networks able to intercommunicate between them and with the International Cardijn

The opening session of the International World Council and of the Colloquy of former leaders will be held together with the presentation of the reality of today’s popular youth and the corresponding challenges.

Then the Colloquy will hear the synthesis of the preparation work, done by all the former leaders who wrote their testimonies, expressed by the continental delegates. As already mentioned, they will summarize not only what the movement brought into their lives, but also what, according to them, the YCW as an organization brought to the worker and social movements, to the Church, to the society, answering the question of whether it is still relevant for today and tomorrow

We strongly believe that the International Colloquy will be one key activity to bring together present leaders and IYCW former members from different countries worldwide.

IYCW Public Debate - November 13th, 2015

Nov13 - Poster

The International Young Christian Workers (IYCW) wishes to invite you to join us for a Public Debate: “Just Work and new society".

The world today is no longer sustainable. What is happening now is not a financial crisis with economic consequences; it is not a job crisis resulting in huge unemployment. It goes beyond that, it is a crisis of the system. Let us discuss it together.

We hope you will participate in this dynamic exchange of ideas where we will explore the role of young workers at the intersection of just work, policies and workers’ rights in repressed societies.

The debate will begin at 15h on Friday, November 13th, 2015 and will go on until 20:00. The event will be held at: ACV-CSC Building - Rue Pletinckx 19 (Dom Helder Camara Hall), 1000 Brussels, Belgium.

If you wish to attend this event, please register with Nubia Alvarez at +32 (0) 2-242-1811 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
