World Assembly of Religions for Peace

About every five years, Religions for Peace gathers hundreds of eminent religious leaders from the world’s great faith traditions together in an assembly where they can share concerns about international affairs and address political and social issues. Each assembly adopts a formal Declaration, which guides the focus of the global network for the next five years. Since the first World Assembly in Kyoto, Japan, in October 1970, Religions for Peace has convened nine Assemblies on five continents.  The next World Assembly will be held in August 2019, in Lindau, Germany, and is titled: "Caring for our Common Future."
