The Anglican Action’s Centre for Social Justice, in conjunction with the Religious Diversity Centre in Aotearoa New Zealand, the Waikato Interfaith Council, and the University of Waikato Islamic Studies Group, is going to hold the 2nd seminar on interfaith partnership for social justice.
The seminar is going to be held in Hamilton on February 21, 2018 at the Anglican Action’s conference room.
Last year representatives from Catholicism, Islam, Judaism, Anglican Church, LDS, Baha’i Faith, and Methodist Church presented their traditions’ creedal perspective on social justice. This year all traditions, except the above mentioned, are welcomed to present their creedal perspective on interfaith and trans-faith partnership for social justice. Unlike creedal perspectives, presenting topics on partnership projects is open to all traditions and non-religious regardless of them being represented in the first seminar or not.
Professor Douglas Pratt will be chairing the event and maximum of 12 presenters are going to discuss different aspects of “interfaith and/or trans-faith partnership for social justice” form their own creedal perspective. The presentations may alternatively focus on a specific partnership project between one religion and others in fighting poverty, corruption, injustice, environmental pollutions, human trafficking, or promotion of fair trade, human rights, gender equality, and so on.
