National Inter Faith Week 2010: aims

Lots of time this morning for thinking about the forthcoming National Inter Faith Week, following yesterday's welcome news that we'll be exhibiting in Highcross again. I look back over the blog to remind myself of the aims for the week, as declared by the Inter Faith Network UK:

  • to strengthen good inter faith relations at all levels;
  • to increase awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK, in particular celebrating and building on the contribution which their members make to their neighbourhoods and to wider society;
  • and to increase understanding between people of religious and non-religious belief.

Nine weeks to go - not forgetting that there's the Council of Faiths contribution to "Leicester Speaks" (AKA Local Democracy Week) to organise in the meantime!
