Religions for Peace harnesses the power of multi-religious cooperation to create conditions for lasting peace.
Religious communities possess enormous capacity to build a peaceful future and faith communities are deeply involved in efforts to improve the human condition.
When religious communities cooperate, their effectiveness and value grows exponentially. This insight informs every aspect of our work at Religions for Peace.
We create and manage interfaith networks that enable religious communities to cooperate to solve critical problems. We help
mobilise the collective assets of religious communities by building the capacity of religious communities to act together and unleashing common action.
We specifically focus on:
Stopping War through conflict transformation and disarmament
Building communities, particularly religious freedom and pluralism, protection of the vulnerable and citizenship
Ending poverty through the millennium development goals and the legal empowerment of the poor
Faiths for Earth and climate protection
That’s why our motto is ‘Different faiths – common action’.
