Event Details

Traditionally, religion has played a vital role in shaping values at the individual, community and institutional levels. Today the religious landscape in Australia is increasingly diverse, including a significant proportion who follow no religion. While religion still plays an important role in many individual lives, its role at the level of the community and institutions is contested. Some question both the value of religion, and the place of religious values in our society. This forum will provide a space for people from diverse religions to explore this challenge together. Among the questions to be addressed are:

  • What is the role of religion and religious values in the public square in Australia?
  • How can faith communities work together to demonstrate and strengthen the value of religion?
  • Within our traditions, can we find values relevant to key issues facing Australia today?
  • What values do we all share?
  • How can we contribute them to public discourse in a secular society?

This one-day forum will provide a timely opportunity to advance discourse on a range of issues related to religious values and the value of religion in contemporary Australia. It will bring religious and community leaders together in an exchange of views that also includes government officials, academics, and interested community members.
