Diversity and Dialogue launches final project report and educational resources

Diversity and Dialogue, the charity coalition led by Save the Children in partnership with the Citizenship Foundation and seven other faith based and secular NGOs have launched their final project report.

Diversity and Dialogue meeting

'Diversity and Dialogue: Building better understanding between young people living in a multi-faith society', gives an overview of what is going on in Britain to bring young people from different faiths and backgrounds together. It analyses the opportunities and challenges of youth interfaith work, and offers ideas and advice for starting up youth interfaith projects.

The report includes an analysis of a consultation with 124 young people living in multi-faith cities in England. Their comments give an indication of the value young people attach to meeting people with a wide range of beliefs and finding out more about different faiths and cultures.

Diversity and Dialogue’s Becky Hatch said “We hope that this report will inspire both individuals and organisations to play an active role in working with young people to build a successful multi-faith society.”

The report was launched at an event in Leeds called 'Living in a Multi-faith Society'. Held to inspire both practitioners and policy-makers to place more emphasis on interfaith work and to share ideas and resources for facilitating dialogue amongst young people, it brought together young people, policy-makers, youth workers, faith leaders, teachers, NGO representatives and other interested individuals.

The report is available free of charge. To order a hard copy of the report please email diversityanddialogue@savethechildren.org.uk.
