G20 Interfaith Summit 2015

G20 Interfaith Summit

The 2015 G20 Interfaith Summit will take place in Instanbul, Turkey, November 16 – 18, 2015.

Message from the Conference Convenor

Religion plays a major role in global events today, including issues from medical ethics to cross-border conflicts to macroeconomic trends. However, religion can be misunderstood or even overlooked as a factor in world events and, thus, the contributions faith and religion make to social well-being and policies, which impact national and international communities, are often not recognised.

The G20 Interfaith Summit will address this by bringing together opinion leaders such as scholars, lawyers and political leaders with faith and interfaith leaders from around the world for three days of discussion and dialogue as a substantial contribution to the G20 Economic Forum.

Such a gathering will showcase the scholarly and societal contributions of various faith traditions and philosophies from around the world. Furthermore, this conference will create opportunities for communication and relationship building and raise the profile of participating communities, groups and organisations.

I invite you to save the dates of November 16-18, 2015 in your calendar and plan to join us in Istanbul, Turkey.

Save the date and join the second annual G20 Interfaith Summit to be held in Istanbul, Turkey from the 16th – 18th of November 2015.
