This vigil for peace had the collaboration of the Directorate General of Religious Affairs of the Department of Justice of the Generalitat (Government of Catalonia), the Barcelona City Council, Cáritas Diocesana de Barcelona, the XIP (Xarxa Interreligiosa per la Pau)[Interreligious Peace Network] and AUDIR [Unesco Association for Interreligious Dialogue].

Justícia i Pau proposed an interreligious and interconvictional space of silence, meditation and vigil for peace, with the participation of the different religious and spiritual traditions present in the city, which read different texts referring to each community. Texts were also read by various social entities, which, based on humanism and the defence of the common good, defend the culture of peace. The reading of the different texts was accompanied by the music of Ravid Goldshmidt’s handpan.
