On August 27 and 28, some 900 youth members from 34 countries across Europe joined an online study course. It featured the faith experiences of four members, a Q&A session and a study presentation on the Sustainable Development Goals. In the lead-up to the course, youth had made efforts to engage in hopeful dialogues with others, counteracting a societal sense of powerlessness and passivity amidst the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and continuing conflicts. President Daisaku Ikeda sent a congratulatory message, commending the youth for their earnest prayers for peace and their efforts to conduct dialogue.
