European Network of Young Interfaith Leaders
Practice interfaith work through the principles of inclusion, openness and mutual appreciation; believe that young people from different religions and cultures can live together peacefully and that society should be inclusive; aim to create a new mind-set and bring about positive change; believe that young people should not only be active participants in interfaith work, but should be leaders within the movement at every level; believe in, and will actively use, peer-to-peer learning, training and mentoring, recognising that we all have something to learn from one another; and operate through a non-hierarchical structure, with people taking roles according to their relevant skills, but utilising horizontal, inclusive decision making processes and ways of working.
The European Network of Young Interfaith Leaders is a project initiated in 2015 and coordinated by the URI Europe Youth Leadership Cooperation Circle.
