EUCLID to support “Interfaith Cities” initiative
EUCLID has confirmed its commitment to support the “Interfaith Cities” (Mayors and Cities for Interfaith Harmony) which aims at organizing proclamations and events in 7 founding and participating cities in February 2017. The official web site is: http://www.interfaithcities.org
The Permanent Delegations of The Gambia and Central African Republic to UNESCO jointly invited a select number of Permanent Delegations to attend an exclusive lecture presented by EUCLID’s international faculty coordinator Pr Cleenewerck on the theme of interfaith harmony and higher education, with a focus on the African region and the 2017 UN interfaith harmony week.
The presentation took place in Paris (1 rue Miollis) at the UNESCO Circle of Delegates meeting room and was attended by representatives (including ambassadors) of Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Madagascar, Mali, Nigeria, and Saudi Arabia. The Permanent Observer of the Holy See had also received the delegation on the previous day.
