Next Generation

The Next Generation at the Parliament of the World’s Religions


In keeping with the mission of the Parliament of the World’s Religions, the Next Generation Task Force is focused on engaging spiritually and geographically diverse young changemakers that are tackling critical issues and working towards interfaith cooperation in their communities.

The Next Generation Task Force is an international working group, working toward the development of inclusive, action-oriented programming at the Parliament of the World’s Religions and within the global interfaith movement.

Engaging & Elevating the Voices of Youth

The Next Generation Task Force (formerly called the Emerging Leaders Task Force) is responsible for organizing the young adult programming (age ~35 and below) at the Parliament of the World’s Religions convenings. With an emphasis on networking, service, and inclusion the Next Generation Task Force utilizes programming at Parliament’s to build local, regional, and international coalitions of interfaith actors interested in youth and our critical issues to help us carry out campaigns and programs in between Parliaments.
