Dear friends, 

Greetings from the International Team of IMCS Pax Romana!

We have the great pleasure to invite you to our Summer School of this year under the theme Building students’ capacities for resilient and sustainable cities” which will take place in Mexico City from 16th to 26th July 2018 (including arrival and departure dates).


The Summer School…

This year’s Summer School will bring together 50 students from around the world for a unique intellectual and practical experience in a multicultural environment. The training offered to the participants is part of the thematic framework of the SDGs, the New Urban Agenda and the encyclical Laudato Si. The call to the apostolic and solidarity jump of the men of good will of social teaching of the Catholic Church, will be an essential tool of exhortation and tools to action for the vulnerable layers whose number is growing in cities. It will be an opportunity for participants to share around opportunities for youth to be at the center of the positive transformations cities need to be more inclusive and welcoming (socially and environmentally).

Mexico 2018 is both an opportunity to deepen one’s knowledge on sustainable development and acquire the leadership skills needed for community transformation. It is also a meeting place where Mexican culture and history will be served as well as the cultural particularities of the localities of origin of all participants. Integral and non-formal education will be used as a basic learning method.
