IRD Activities

  • Catalan Parliament of Religions

    Held in Catalan-speaking territories and gathering organisations from Spain, Andorra, and France, it aims to favour not only the exchange between religious traditions and secular worldviews, but especially the pedagogy of dialogue among religions oriented towards a culture of peace and coexistence. The Catalan Parliament of Religions is intended to be an expression of sincere willingness to host in fruitful and creative dialogue ways of understanding religion in a pluralistic society such as the Catalan, in the conviction that dialogue will make possible that we work together effectively to achieve a more humane society and in coexistence. It is inspired in the Parliament of the World's Religions, which was held in Barcelona in 2004. Therefore, it combines religious and spiritual practices, artistic performances, exhibitions, round tables, conferences, and workshops, ensuring religious and cultural diversity
