UK Interfaith Youth Network

Religions for Peace Global Youth Network was established at the 2006 World Youth Assembly. The Network is representative of the world’s major religious traditions across six regions, In Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and Caribbean, Middle East and NorthAmerica. These Interfaith Youth Networks have been an established feature in the Religions for Peace family all over the world.

After a long preparation period and with the generous support of the European Interfaith Youth Network, the RfP UK Interfaith Youth Network officially launched on Saturday 3rd December 2016 during the EIYN Summit at Taplow Court, Berkshire.
