Religions In Action is a project of the European Council of Religious Leaders (ECRL) and supported by Religions for Peace International in connection with the World Assembly of Religions for Peace, to be held in Lindau-Germany in 2019.
The site aims to become a valuable resource over time, to be a hub for information and inspiration, to encourage projects in other countries and regions in Europe and globally. And to raise awareness of the positive contribution that Religious groups and organisations make to our societies.
“This platform can be used to illustrate how Religious communities are making a positive impact on some of the most critical challenges faced in Europe today” — Dr Mark Owen
Religions in Action
The website is modelled around the four key themes which will inform the RfP World Assembly:
- Transforming Conflict
- Promoting Just and Harmonious Societies
- Advancing Sustainable, Integral Human Development
- Protecting the Earth
Religions for Peace is the world’s largest and most representative multi-religious coalition—advancing common action among the world’s religious communities for peace since 1970. ECRL is one of five regional Interreligious Councils within the Religions for Peace global network.
