Women, Faith and a Culture of Peace

Asia-Pacific Interfaith Symposium
February 2008
Saturday 23rd mid-afternoon to Monday 25th mid-afternoon
Multi-Faith Centre, Griffith University, Nathan Campus, Brisbane, Australia

A Culture of Peace, as promoted by United Nations’ agencies, NGOs and peace educators, encompasses values, attitudes, modes of behaviour and ways of life that reject violence in all manifestations. It also seeks to address the root causes of conflicts and peacelessness, and to resolve them through creative and participatory non-violent strategies.

The invited panelists comprise 18 overseas panel speakers and workshop presenters and 20 Australian presenters; including from the Philippines Sr. Estrella Castalone, FMA, Executive Secretary of the AMRSP, Beatriz Colmo of MINDANAWON, and Sr Cecilia Ido, Institute of Women’s Studies, St. Scholastica’s College.

The speakers will be sharing valuable and inspiring grassroots experiences and lessons for interfaith dialogue and building a culture of peace.
