INTERRELIGIOUS AND INTERFAITH DIALOGUE2020-12-16T12:50:51+01:00

Through our events, we aim to evoke good practices and challenges ahead for combating intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief.

We strive to advance the culture of dialogue as a method of growing in the knowledge of one another, defend the values of mutual understanding, human fraternity and harmonious coexistence as well as to re-establish wisdom, justice and love.

We believe that, through dialogue, we can create a level playing field between religious leaders and secular policymakers, in order to break down barriers and to exchange crucial knowledge for tackling global challenges. The use of interreligious platforms can deepen respect for the Other and contribute to the creation of positive change. We also strive to pay particular attention to the role of education, which should specifically focus on the human dimension of religions and human ethics in order to enhance a more responsible behaviour towards different cultures and religions.
