The Arc-2010 International Interreligious Youth Seminar is taking place in the Univ Studite Monastery (Western Ukraine). It is the 5th such meeting where young people from different parts of Ukraine, Poland, and Israel come together,

The seminar also welcomed guest speakers: Ukrainian government officials, Polish Consul General in Lviv, representatives of different religious organizations. The main theme for discussions and future elaborations is how to be the good neighbors and partners - politically, economically, and personally.

During the week-long seminar the youth is learning about the painful pages of their shared history and is looking for ways to reconcile and cooperate. The place for the seminar is chosen on purpose for during WWII Studite monks hid Jewish children in the monastery and many children were rescued from death camps.
