  • The Parliament of the World’s Religions and Spiritual Playdate are committed to fostering dialogue that transcends borders of both faith and land, enabling youth to explore, discover, and celebrate the beauty and power of belief and conscience.

    To this end, we seek to build bridges of acceptance and understanding by facilitating face-to-face interactions and enacting thoughtful, inclusive, and fun programs that spark ongoing impact in both individuals and communities.

    PoWR and Spiritual Playdate’s first official programmatic partnership took place at the 2018 Parliament of the World’s Religions in Toronto, Canada with the Interfaith Family Festival.

    At the 2023 Parliament Convening in Chicago, we’re doing it again with the Kids of PoWR track and it’s more important than ever!
