Udenrigsministeriet inviterer til web-konference i Kontaktforum for Religions- og Trosfrihed om COVID19 og friheden til tanke, samvittighed og religion

14.05.2020  12:50
Men hvor galt står det til? COVID19-krisen åbner samtidigt muligheder og behov for, at religiøst baserede organisationer og aktører qua deres lokaltilstedeværelse og den tillid, de her ofte nyder, udfylder en vigtig rolle i humanitære indsatser. Kan krisen også bruges til at fremme gensidig respekt for hinandens frihed til tanke, samvittighed og religion og fremme af inter-religiøs solidaritet?

Det er oplægget for det næste web-møde i Kontaktforum for Religions- og Trosfrihed den 29. maj 2020 kl. 10:00-11:30. Mødet afholdes delvist på engelsk og er åbent for alle. Se program og hvordan du tilmelder dig nedenfor.
