Coexister is a non-denominational organization and an interfaith youth-led movement. It gathers 3000 active young leaders in 45 European cities. Their main mission is to offer them to experience interfaith diversity in a positive way through a one-year program. They developed an active pedagogy, so all their beneficiaries can contribute to peace building locally by organizing 1200 dialogue activities, solidarity work and school sessions to tackle stereotypes on diversity. They reached more than 120 000 students in schools in 10 years. Through daily work at the local level, the 45 local Coexister groups in France see the diversity of religious, spiritual and philosophical beliefs of their members not as an obstacle, but rather as a driving force used to create a better future for all through joint actions.
Coexister founded an international branch, Interfaith tour. The objective of the program is to identify interfaith initiatives that contribute to peace, to promote them, connect them to one another and make them truly inspiring. Every two years, four young people of different faiths prepare and are trained for 18 months to complete an eight-month study trip to 25 countries to carry out this mission. The first 3 InterFaith Tour teams have studied 80 countries and identified more than 1,200 interfaith initiatives. These meetings led to the production of 140 videos and the conduct of nearly 900 interviews with citizens, social entrepreneurs, community activists, political and religious leaders, and engaged students.
