Peace education meets religion – virtual event
September 23 @ 6:00 am - 9:00 am EDT
A virtual and interactive launch of a manual
Religious traditions can play an ambivalent role: in some settings they can foster violence or act as a powerful driver of conflict, while in others they can be a resource for peaceful actions in being a ‘connector’. Faith-based actors and institutions have a central role to play in harnessing religion’s potential for building peace and transforming conflict.
Aiming to support the efforts of faith-based multipliers, the Berghof Foundation and partners developed and piloted the ‘Peace Education meets Religion: Manual for Multipliers’ over the past two years.
We invite you to the manual’s virtual launch and an interactive workshop introducing some of the manual’s specific methods.
