Twenty-five Nobel Peace Prize winners and numerous celebrities are participating this weekend in Rome in the second World Meeting of Human Fraternity, organized by the Fratelli Tutti foundation. A majority of Nobel Prize winners are already co-signatories of the Declaration on Human Fraternity, a document which advocates in particular for the institution of a “Ministry for Peace” and is inspired by the pontiff’s encyclical Fratelli tutti. This Friday, they participated in a Peace Table inaugurated by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State of the Holy See.

In total, fifteen round tables are organized with the main theme of the place of humanity in society. Pope Francis will participate in person in one of the meetings, dedicated to future generations. The Nobel Prize winners will then present the fruit of their reflection to the pontiff.
