Objective

For Faith Leaders and Academics to share perspectives and reflections from the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, and what more collaborative efforts can be initiated to further cement interfaith understanding, under such circumstances.

Summary

Religious and Faith Leaders have been contributing their share in the global effort to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic – clarifying the issues, giving assurance and instilling resilience in the community.  The important roles they played have not been much known. With this webinar, eminent speakers who have been active in interfaith works are invited to address questions about interfaith challenges and opportunities that can lead to greater collaborative efforts and dialogues in conveying the message of love, peace, mutual respect and human dignity.

There will be messages from local and international Faith Leaders followed by a Q&A with the Singapore-based Speakers.
