Parliament of World Religions: Toronto, Canada
The Parliament of the World's Religions was created to cultivate harmony among the world's religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful and sustainable world. The theme was inspired in part by the character of its host city. In Toronto, advancing civic partnerships among faiths and guiding institutions to work for economic, climate, or racial and sectarian justice means solving conflicts in ways that reflect the Parliament’s methods: increasing the roles of the world’s next generations, women and girls, indigenous communities, and minority communities, including immigrants and refugees. Join a cohort of students and others "to gain mutual understanding, speaking honestly but humanely in order to reconcile our different approaches to global problems, and thinking creatively and planning boldly to become change agents throughout the global community".
–Dr. Larry Greenfield, Parliament Executive Director
