Building Society through Interfaith Activities in Sweden

Sweden: Building Society through Interfaith Activities

Together for Sweden is an inter-religious programme where believers and non-believers alike meet to discuss various issues relating to their religions and to human values generally. The programme addresses hostility towards foreigners, racism and extremism. The project uses religion as a means of integration and shows that religion can be a force to be reckoned with in achieving peace and understanding. The work is lead jointly by a priest and an imam and hence stands out among other Swedish initiatives that work with engaging youth.
