World Interfaith Harmony Week 2023 Kicks Off in 2 Weeks

January 11, 2023

The annual observance of World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW) kicks off on January 28th this year. World Interfaith Harmony Week is based on UNGA Resolution A/65/PV.34 for a worldwide week of interfaith harmony. All around the world, organizations, and individuals are hosting events during the first week of February to help neighbors of different faiths get to know each other and build a foundation for more peaceful and friendly communities.

At the Parliament of the World’s Religions, we believe that observing World Interfaith Harmony Week and supporting events hosted in observance is an extension of our mission to cultivate harmony among the world’s religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful and sustainable world.

For the 2023 observance, we invite the global interfaith community to celebrate World Interfaith Harmony Week by hosting an event and making it a pre-Parliament event in support of the upcoming 2023 Parliament of the World’s Religions. Learn more here→
