Dialogue Knowledge Hub
Interfaith Movement Coexister is youth-based and was founded on January 14th, 2009, in the aftermath of an Israeli-Palestinian crisis. The project was born at a meeting for peace in Paris to promote conflict resolution through social media among the youth. While this project started with a political message it later evolved a religious mission too. 11 young Jews, Christians and Muslims united under the motto ‘Diversity in faith, Unity in action’ and together, they organized the association’s first campaign ‘Ensemble à Sang%’, which led to the collection of 150 blood donations. The recently created Coexister group officially became an association on September 11th, 2009, under the 1901 French law (not-for-profit organization). Their objective is to explore all the dimensions of interreligious dialogue and coexistence among the youth. Coexister is now four years old and its members are active in five fields: dialogue, solidarity, outreach, training, and study trips.
