Ecumenical Youth Council in Europe
Seek unity between Christians and are engaged in the work for justice, peace & the integrity of creation.
EYCE was founded in 1968, but its roots go back to just after World War II. In 1947, the World Council of Churches (WCC) began to organise annual meetings for those responsible for ecumenical youth work in the different countries of Europe. 1968 was a special year for youth and students throughout the world – these youth leaders decided to found their own organisation, later known as the Ecumenical Youth Council in Europe.
