The webinar is organized by IAPD Europe and UPF Switzerland in joint sponsorship with local partners. It will be dealing with minority faiths and will create a platform of constructive cooperation among the different groups in order to improve the society in which we are currently living in. There is a need to analyze in a self-critical way, why minority faiths have experienced rejection and misunderstanding and what could be done to improve the situation. Making their new input understood in a better way could possibly result in a broader acceptance and embrace of serious minority religions, and movements. We are living in a time where the credibility of all religions is at stake and where a growing number of people are turning away from more institutionalized religions towards a more personal spirituality.
In this interfaith panel, prominent leaders of minority faiths and religious scholars will gather to present their perspectives on the topic, will answer pertinent questions and will also point out different proposals for solutions in light of a more harmonious relationship among the different faiths in our current society.
We greatly appreciate your participation in this important event and thank you in advance for your interest.
