New ACWAY activity implemented! This time in Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico.

A couple of weeks ago, Alberto Elías Gonzalez (Elahas Peace), one of our new fellows that joined ACWAY after the 4th Forum in Azerbaijan, implemented an interfaith activity in the region of La Marquesa forest, Mexico.

Did you know that today, September 21st, is the International Day of Peace?

The date is a United Nations sanctioned holiday and is annually celebrated by nations, international organizations, NGOs and other groups.

Officially adopted as an international date in 1981, the UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace within and among all nations and peoples.

In 2019, the theme of the International Day of Peace is "Climate Action for Peace". This thematic highlights the importance of taking care of the environment as a way to protect and promote peace throughout the world.

As an organization compromised with interfaith harmony, ACWAY believes in the importance of promoting peace through interfaith actions.

In this sense, we would like to invite you to reflect today: how can you contribute to a more tolerant and peaceful world in your daily life?

Happy #PeaceDay!

A Common Word Among the Youth

Last week, ACWAY has been represented in the Religions for Peace 10th World Assembly - the world’s most representative and multi-religious gathering of religious communities - that happened in Lindau, Germany, between 20-23 August 2019.

Under the topic “Caring for our Common Future ̶ Advancing Shared Well-being”, the assembly gathered more than 800 people, including religious leaders, youth, people of faith and representatives of governments, intergovernmental organizations and civil society groups to engage in multi-religious action and share best practices in the area.

Our ACWAY fellows Azizah Syiami Mutik, Bhikkhu Mandalar Zan, Anja Fahlenkamp de Pascual, Laiqa Dilip Daewani and Andrew Lesa have been present at the event as youth delegates. They were able to contribute and make suggestions for the assembly commitment in topics such as protection of the earth, sustainable and integral human development, and preventing and transforming conflict.

A Common Word Among the Youth

Between 15th and 21st July 2019, ACWAY Forum 4 was held in Baku, Azerbaijan. Entitled “Baku Intercultural Youth Forum 2019: Interfaith in Action”, the international forum was the result of a partnership between ACWAY, Baku International Multiculturalism Center, Stirling Foundation, Young Friends of Azerbaijan and Youth Foundation of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Being the longest ACWAY conference so far, the partnership with Baku International Multiculturalism Center made it possible for participants to enjoy a 7-day fully funded program composed by the ACWAY conference and Baku International Multiculturalism Summer School. As a consequence, the 100 participants that attended the event had the chance to contextualize the concepts of multiculturalism and interfaith harmony into practice.

The full program was divided into two parts. In this post, you can see a little bit of what happened in the first three days of the forum, that took place at the Baku Congress Center.

During this first moment, our participants engaged in skills-based workshops and critical dialogue thinking around interfaith action, religion and conflict resolution, interfaith in diverse spaces and good practices and skills shared by the participants.
