As the Looking back to look forward: COVID-19 and Faith Reflections on 2020-2021 Webinar Series continues, this event aims to showcase on-ground stories and case studies—shared by local faith actors—that include and also go beyond COVID-19 awareness and provision of health services. Given that the pandemic has posed a number of other pressing issues and challenges that local faith actors must deal with, this session highlights faith-inspired responses to social and economic implications of COVID-19 on women’s rights, mental health, livelihoods, misinformation, peacebuilding, and beyond. Local faith actors from Sri Lanka, the Philippines, the Arab World, and elsewhere will share their stories with an emphasis on their opportunities and challenges during the response.
This webinar will be co-hosted by JLI’s Fair & Equitable Dialogues Series, with the support of KAICIID, and in conjunction with the Religious Responses to COVID-19 project with The Berkley Center for Religion Peace and World Affairs at Georgetown University and the World Faiths Development Dialogue (WFDD).
The discussion will be in English with simultaneous translation to Arabic, French and Spanish.
