About 100 young Vincentians from all over the world met in Salamanca, Spain from 4 to 8 June 2008, for the
first International Study Days for Vincentian Youth.
From 5 to 13 June 2008, the International Confederation of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul held 3 very important meetings: to start with, the very first Â« International Study Days for Vincentian Youth Â» brought together young people from all over the world, then the International Executive Committee held its annual meeting. This was an opportunity to invite the countries involved to the first meeting of the Â« Mobility in Europe Â» project, for which the CGI received its first European Union grant. All these meetings took place at the Spirituality Centre for the Lazarist Fathers in Salamanca, where the welcome we received and the kindness of our hosts were once more exceptional, as was the help given by the teams from the Madrid and Spanish National Councils.
