The World Youth Alliance is a global coalition of young people committed to promoting the dignity of the person and building solidarity among youth from developed and developing nations. We train young people to work at the regional and international levels to impact policy and culture. Through this lived experience of the dignity of the person, young people are able to affirm life at all levels of society.
Track A is the core material for training in the principles that inform the mission of the World Youth Alliance. It is a collection of texts with corresponding questions that together set forth the philosophical underpinnings necessary to understand and substantiate the claim that every human person possesses an intrinsic and inviolable dignity. From its earliest days, Track A has been the means of preparing members to articulate WYA’s mission and effectuate its goals. In 2012, WYA will be expanding Track A’s reach by adapting the materials to develop certification and educational programs in a variety of formats in order to reach a wider audience. Projects slated for development include High School and University chapter materials, materials for member and partner organization use, and summer camp curriculum standardization.

The WYA week in
17th-24th of March, the WYA Europe team will be in
Emerging Leaders Conference 2013
“With the Millennium Goals expiring, the new agenda for development post- 2015 is now producing a new set of development goals. Much of the focus of these will be on the issue of the environment and how the human person fit into it sustainably. There are important decisions to be made about the roles and responsibilities of people and communities, but it must go hand-in-hand with their rights as well. The difficult task ahead will be finding the balance between sustainability and development. We believe that a person-centred approach will be the place to start to ensure an efficient harmony between the two ideals.”
Monthly Film Screenings
Film Screenings on the third Tuesday of every month. Films or documentaries are chosen which provide an interesting insight into various ethical problems in the world today. They help provide an engaging and novel perspective in an enjoyable environment, into issues that often seem removed from the convenience of European debate.
