From 25-27 October, 2012, New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation, in collaboration with The Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions, the United Religions Initiative, and the Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue Group, will host the 4th Annual International Conference on Youth and Interfaith Dialogue. The Conference brings together citizens, including representatives of CSOs and Faith-based Groups within Nigeria and around the world to promote and improve mutual respect between faiths and cultures and to support civil society and individuals who intend to reject violence and build our common future. Since its launch in October 2009, the annual International Conference on Youth and Interfaith Dialogue has introduced and supported actions expanding mutual perceptions among individuals of different religions, cultures, genders, and ethnicities.
The Conference will offer new tools of a successful Interreligious and Intercultural Model for Dialogue and Peaceful coexistence in Nigeria, and Strategy for overcoming the misunderstandings and stereotypes which affect relations between and within the societies. The women and men will provide recommendations to decision-makers, institutions and individuals for dignifying everyone and our shared values. In a safe space, the Conference will be a living model for creating prosperity, coexistence beyond war, and restoring friendships and trust. This year, we are newly partnering and working very closely with the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions and the Inter-Faith Action for Peace in Africa (IFAPA) to host a pre-parliament event to create awareness about the global interreligious movement and mobilize towards The Brussels, Belgium 2014 Parliament Event.
