The Parliament of the World’s Religions joins the global interfaith movement in the countdown to the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week. Observances for 2021 World Interfaith Harmony Week will likely be different for each observing community as nations around the world continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Parliament remains a committed partner of organizers around the world.

Explore Engagement Opportunities
The World Interfaith Harmony Week initiative encourages organizers to ask themselves the question, “How can we socially distance but remain socially connected in these challenging times?”
The Parliament remains a steadfast supporter of the observance of World Interfaith Harmony Week. Now more than ever, the interfaith movement is needed to foster inclusion, harmony, and inspiration for our communities.
As our communities continue to grapple with COVID-19, we encourage organizers to host virtual observances to protect their communities. And if your local government allows physical events, we implore that all COVID-19 guidelines are followed.
