GENEVA, 25 February 2003 (LWI) - "The launch of the Youth in
Church and Society Web site is an important step in our work with
and for the young people of the Lutheran World Federation's 136
member churches," said Tita Valeriano, LWF Secretary for Youth in
Church and Society. It is hoped that this new presence on the Web
will facilitate information sharing, relationship building and
working together on common concerns among youth constituents in
the Lutheran communion.

The Web site currently brings together information on YICAS
programs, activities and resources. Though print communication
will still remain important so those without Internet access are
not excluded, many of these resources will also now be available

Future plans for the site include a directory of the 16 regional
and thematic Lutheran youth networks and a discussion forum
addressing issues and concerns affecting young people today.

(The LWF is a global communion of Christian churches in the
Lutheran tradition. Founded in 1947 in Lund (Sweden), the LWF now
has 136 member churches in 76 countries representing over 61.7
million of the 65.4 million Lutherans worldwide. The LWF acts on
behalf of its member churches in areas of common interest such as
ecumenical relations, theology, humanitarian assistance, human
rights, communication, and the various aspects of mission and
development work. Its secretariat is located in Geneva,
