 Pace e Bene Australia invites inspiring young people to apply for a: Nonviolent Interfaith Leadership Retreat 

Date: 6th – 11th April 2014

There are many inspiring young people actively involved in community organisations and faith communities across Australia, who are working tirelessly to address our current social, political, military, economic and ecological challenges. This program is designed to cultivate and build capacity in these young leaders to sustain change, go deeper and to bring people together. This program was developed two years ago and is again open next year as a 5-day residential retreat for 20 young people.  It is an outstanding program, one not to be missed and will greatly benefit both the participants and their organisations or faith communities from which they belong.

Participants will gain :

  • A deeper commitment to living and working from an interfaith perspective;
