Description

"Building a healthy, religiously diverse democracy: Notes for Interfaith Leaders"- A lecture and discussion by Eboo Patel, Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core.

Canada prides itself in being a religiously diverse country. Yet here at home and around the world, tensions around questions of faith have increased in the public domain, in global affairs, in institutions of higher learning and in other organizations. Religious communities have both an opportunity and a responsibility to nurture effective interfaith leaders to ensure that these leaders have a recognition of the history of interfaith cooperation, appreciate various religious, ethical, and philosophical communities, have the ability to recognize troubling patterns with regard to the lack of religious diversity, and demonstrate the desire to contribute to the positive public narrative about religious diversity. Eboo Patel will explore these concepts during his lecture and will discuss the critical role that we all need to play in developing and encouraging effective practices and programs that promote interfaith understanding.
