The Next Parliament of the World's Religions
The largest, most inclusive and most diverse interreligious gathering in the world. It is the pinacle event of the interreligious movement, gathering the top academics, spiritual and religious leaders, activists, community leaders, and people of goodwill from all sectors of society. More than 10,000 people from virtually every religious, spiritual and convictional tradition are expected to participate in the Next Parliament.
Sacred Space & Community
Because sacred spaces are a tangible means for community-building, the Council organizes Open Houses in diverse places of worship and practice in the Chicago area and throughout the international Partner Cities Network.
Educating Future Leaders
The Council is committed to better equipping leaders of the global interreligious movement. At the 2009 Parliament in Melbourne, the Council provided special programming for Christian, Jewish and Muslim students to prepare for leadership in our increasingly multi-religious world. Currently, we offer trainings and workshops – both local and virtual – on interreligious dialogue and action.
Newsletters, Webinars & Trainings
We publish a topically current and thematically rich e-newsletter every two weeks to share important news and events from around the world. Monthly online webinars address cutting-edge issues and are hosted by prominent religious thinkers and leaders.
