Parliament Hosts Intergenerational Conversation in Observance of WIHW

February 25, 2021

On Wednesday, February 17th the Next Generation Task Force at the Parliament of the World’s Religions hosted a virtual program in observance of UN World Interfaith Harmony Week. The program centered on the theme “building better together” reflecting on the lessons learned in 2020 and exploring the agenda for the future.

Kusumita Pedersen from the Parliament of the World’s Religions and Pragna Vasupal from Green Hope Foundation joined Kehkashan Basu and Miriam Quezada in a special interactive discussion on the critical need for interfaith harmony as our communities deal with issues worsened by COVID and prepare for a post-COVID world where we must determine how we can continue to work together.
