Description:

The terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 shook the world’s sense of safety and peace. For many, the collapse of the Twin Towers caused one’s concept of religion to undergo a paradigm shift. Faith that once represented piety, harmony and virtue, became a veil for aggression, hate and terror. The 3rd Global Conference on World’s Religions after September 11: From Faith to Interfaith, aims to remind mankind of the positive and uniting power of religion. On September 15th, 2016, religious leaders and political activists will convene in Montreal to discuss current issues and to announce a Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the World’s Religions. World-renown speakers including Karen Armstrong, Deepak Chopra, Shirin Ebadi, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Charles Taylor, Robert Thurman, Elie Wiesel and others will discuss critical issues of faith and human rights in today’s world. http://worldsreligions2016.org
