The Next Generation Task Force at the Parliament of the World’s Religions is dedicated to the engagement, empowerment, and visibility of youth among peoples of faith and conscience from around the world.

The Next Generation Program works to highlight the work (be it academic, artistic, or civic) of young people from around the world as part of the What Are You(th) Doing? campaign.

Want to be a part of the world’s largest, most inclusive, interfaith gathering in the world from your community? Share a video, photo, or art piece on your social media with a caption showcasing what you are doing to make the world a more just, peaceful and sustainable world and be sure to use the hashtag #NextGenPoWR.
