World ORT  recently signed an alliance with the Pontifical International Law Foundation, Scholas Occurrentes, to organise an event that will allow young people from all over the world, with different religions and socioeconomic backgrounds, to participate in open and meaningful dialogue. Scholas was founded by Pope Francis in August 2013, with the aim of linking technology with art and sports to promote social integration and the culture of the encounter for Peace.

Thanks to this alliance, next October, hundreds of teenagers from diverse cultural and social backgrounds will gather at an international conference in Buenos Aires.
