Event description

Description

On April 28-30, 2019, the Canadian Interfaith Conversation is sponsoring the fourth conference called “Our Whole Society,” which aims to foster a new dialogue about the changing role of religion in a pluralistic Canadian society.

In this conference, we are building on an approach to discourse that seeks to draw on insights from diverse religious and secular traditions of thought to navigate the challenges of constructing a society that is more robust and unified amidst its diversity. This year's theme is Identity & Common Ground in an Age of Transition. Three sub-themes will help deepen and expand the conversation: Rethinking Identity, Addressing Extremism and Polarization, and Technology, Values, and Society.
