While the number of official delegates to the Assembly was relatively small (less than 800), the Mutirão enabled much broader participation in the life of the ecumenical movement. Mutirão is a Brazilian word and concept that roughly translates as "coming together to make a difference".
As an integral part of the Assembly, the Mutirão provided a space for workshops, celebrations, seminars and exhibits for the whole Assembly community. The Mutirão was a dynamic platform open to any person, congregation or organization wishing to accompany the Assembly in a spirit of ecumenical sharing, celebration and formation.
Mutirão was an important, creative and participatory opportunity for young participants to be exposed to ecumenism and to shape the ecumenical movement.
