On 6 October 2016, the Holy Father announced the theme of the XV Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops: "Young People, the Faith and Vocation Discernment." The work of the Synod began immediately with the drafting of the Preparatory Document (DP), Which was published on 13 January 2017, together with a "Letter to young people" by the Holy Father. The DP included a Questionnaire, mainly addressed to Bishops' Conferences, to the Synods of Eastern Catholic Churches and to other ecclesial bodies, with fifteen questions for everybody and three specific questions for each continent, as well as a request to share three "best practices." From 11 to 15 September 2017, an International Seminar on the Condition of youth in the world took place, with the participation of many experts and young people, that helped focus on the situation of young people today from a scientific standpoint.
