The countdown has begun. Thousands of young people from around the world are meeting on July 6-8, 2018 in Manila, Philippines, moved by their project to build a more united and supportive world.


A project that is already a real life experience, an invitation to build bridges of brotherhood and contribute to the tearing down of barriers of indifference, prejudice and selfishness.


Begun in 1973 from an idea of Chiara Lubich, foundress of the Focolare Movement, the Genfest is a gathering of young people from across the globe. The 11th edition of Genfest will be held in Manila. The Genfest has turned out to be a festival of ideas and projects that inspire thousands of young people from different ethnic groups, cultures and religions to change and point their lives towards ideals of brotherhood and a united world.


The main event will be held in the World Trade Centre Metro Manila, while all the workshops will be held at De La Salle University.
