Join us for an interfaith dialogue on the importance of nurturing the spiritual development of children! 
The World Interfaith Harmony Week is held annually to promote culture, peace and tolerance between different religious and spiritual traditions.
This interfaith dialogue will bring together diverse religious and spiritual leaders and faith actors to provide theological reflections on the importance of nurturing the spiritual development of children in the early years and the role of religious communities to protect children from violence and promote their holistic well-being.
As a direct contribution to interfaith efforts, the International Consortium on Nurturing Values and Spirituality in Early Childhood for the Prevention of Violence has developed a Toolkit to nurture the spiritual development of children in the early years.
The dialogue will be followed by a Q&A and information regarding the recently launched Toolkit.
