Interfaith Conference Australia
The Melbourne Parliament offers the opportunity to continue with the reconciliation process that the Australian government began by apologizing to Indigenous people for the wrongs committed against them. The Parliament provides the occasion to focus on the struggle against poverty across the world with the aim of making poverty history. As the world faces challenges of consumption and sustainability, access to food and water for all people has become a pressing concern. Religious and spiritual communities can collaborate with one another and other guiding institutions to work to reverse the conditions of injustice and poverty that provide breeding grounds for extremism.
