Conference Thematic Statement

We search for our common human values in our diverse religious and cultural traditions. We understand that universal human rights imply both positive duties and responsibilities. We believe that we can work together for more justice, humanity and peace in our world, and that religions and diverse worldviews have a positive contribution to make. This conference invites you to an open-minded interaction with people who find inspiration from a diverse spectrum of sources.
