Young Christian, Jewish and Muslim adults have gathered from around the world to explore inter-faith relations and unity in diversity during a summer seminar at the World Council of Churches' (WCC) Ecumenical Institute in Bossey, Switzerland.

The July seminar has brought together 21 participants from Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and the Americas to take a closer look at the question, 'How can we affirm our identity as Muslims, Jews and Christians not in separation or against each other but in relation to one another?'

The participants will also speculate on what the future holds as the traditional "one nation, one culture and one religion" gives way to greater cultural and religious diversity.
