Objectives

Many think religions make up part of the problem - but working together they can be part of the solution.
Religions for Peace is an international coalition of representatives from the world's great religions who are dedicated to achieving peace. For 50 years we have brought together faith communities to take action together for peace.  
Religions for Peace UK is the independent national chapter of this worldwide movement.
We aim to motivate and mobilise faith communities in UK, including their women and their youth, to realise our motto of "different faiths, common action".

RfPUK shares responsibility with our fellow interreligious bodies worldwide to co-operate on issues of common concern, tackling global key priorities which are bigger problems than any one country can resolve alone, including

  • promoting peaceful, just and inclusive society 
  • advocating for gender equality
  • nurturing a sustainable environment
  • bringing faith communities together to champion the right for the freedom of thought, conscience and religion and belief
  • making inter-religions education to all people to ensure the understanding of diverse traditions as a vital element to increasing trust, respect, and cooperation among all people and faiths.
  • together with our religious leadership, forging strong partnerships with governments, civil society, and faith-based organisations 

Activities

Our activity types include online and in-person exhibitions, discussion events, lectures, training sessions, working with single and multi-faith organisations, presenting education material through events and online, partner other interfaith actors to reach wider audiences and beneficiaries, and motivating faith communities in our network to forge new projects to bring peaceful coexistence and an harmonious society.
