Interfaith and Youth

youthsYoung people are taking up active roles in many interfaith arenas of activity. Young people with determination can reap the harvest of cooperation, understanding and peaceful development.

Regional Interfaith Dialogue endorses further exchanges between people (e.g. young people, students, teachers, religious leaders, academics) of different faiths, within and between countries, and at the grassroots communal levels. Improvements to the religious education curriculum facilitate moderate religious views among young people.

The development of resources for teaching young people about other faiths that are acceptable to the relevant religious communities and to educators is a critical education resource needed in this region.

Strengthening multi-religious youth networks across the region, encouraging cooperation, including through exchange programs, camps and training programs are all recommended activities for creating interfaith cooperation and understanding by young people.
