The World Interfaith Harmony Week was first proposed at the UN General Assembly on September 23, 2010 by H.M. King Abdullah II of Jordan. Just under a month later, on October 20, 2010, it was unanimously adopted by the UN and henceforth the first week of February will be observed as a World Interfaith Harmony Week.
Coming soon on February 3rd at the United Nations:
At United Nations Headquarters - Conference Room 1. New York, NY 10017
Please join us for an afternoon of thoughtful presentations, music and ceremony.
World Interfaith Harmony Week, established by U.N. General Assembly Resolution 65/5, offers the opportunity to highlight the vital role of communities of faith working with the United Nations to guide our world toward a more compassionate, sustainable future. Religious leaders will join distinguished governmental and U.N. speakers to demonstrate support for the Sustainable Development Goals. The focus will be on the importance of interfaith solidarity in accomplishing the Goals, as well as innovative approaches that develop a spirit of partnership among religious communities and with the United Nations.
