  1. To discover the others by meeting them and by giving the example of openness to dialogue and solidarity.
  2. To create a dynamic process of mutual understanding that will contribute to peace, tolerance and respect for differences.
  3. To touch the conscience in the moments of introspection offered by eminent representatives of the speech, music, and sacred art, and to share the inspiration conveyed by the great traditions.

Non-Profit Association « OUVERTURES » a.s.b.l.

Aspirations for peace remain alive in the heart of mankind.
By combining the strengths of institutions and of people willing to start a dynamic process of sharing and reconciliation, the Non-Profit-Association OUVERTURES has organized for
the first time a series of three activities on the theme "Events to promote Peace":

  1. An international conference bringing together representatives of these traditions to talk about mutual tolerance, forgiveness, reconciliation, and recognition;
  2. A meeting bringing together young people from every religious confession and opinion, with speakers from every monotheistic tradition and cultural background;
  3. A concert bringing together, interpreters of the Sacred Music of these traditions, in a single evening.


There will be no peace in the world without peace between religions, but there will be no peace among religions without the awakening of the consciousness of every one of us.

The "Events to promote Peace" ended with a manifesto that we now call : The Brussels Appeal.
