What is World Interfaith Harmony Week?
World Interfaith Harmony Week is based on UNGA Resolution A/65/PV.34 for a worldwide week of interfaith harmony. It was proposed in 2010 by HM King Abdullah II and HRH Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad of Jordan. All around the world, organizations and individuals host 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.
World Interfaith Harmony Week encourages grassroots events that link people together in a global wave of understanding, respect, and action. Events organized in observance of World Interfaith Harmony Week have the opportunity to win a trip to Jordan and cash prizes of $25,000 for 1st place, $15,000 for 2nd place, and $5,000 for 3rd place if selected as a top-quality event.
