Tony Blair Faith Foundation

1,052 views 1 year ago
In today's world, religion remains at the core of life for billions of people. The world continues to become increasingly interconnected with old boundaries of culture, identity and even nationhood being eroded. The majority of conflicts in the world have a religious or cultural dimension, and we have seen faith become hijacked by those who seek to use it for violent and subversive ends.

At the Tony Blair Faith Foundation we believe that understanding and respecting different faiths must be central to securing sustained and informed peace in the world.

We advocate a positive alternative by giving voice to those who seek peace in the present - and seek to ensure it for future generations. We act, inform and educate about religion in the modern world.

Faith and Globalisation Initiative Play

The Faith and Globalisation Initiative builds partnerships with leading universities on every continent to develop a deeper understanding of the inter-relationship between faith and globalisation. The programme includes a multi-disciplinary, cross-departmental course including joint teaching between institutions using video conferencing and an online community, public lectures, research, campus activities, policy events and a dynamic website.

The network is spearheaded by a network of Universities including Yale University in the USA, National University of Singapore (NUS), McGill University in Canada, Durham University in the UK, Technologico de Monterrey University in Mexico, the University of Western Australia (UWA), Peking University in China and the University of Sierra Leone's Fourah Bay college.

Face to Faith Play

Face to Faith is the Foundation's global schools programme, bringing 11 to 16 year olds together using digital technology so they can learn about each other, and about the attitude of different religions to global issues such as the environment, health, art, poverty and wealth.

Using a secure website which adheres to child-protection guidelines, video-conferencing, teacher training, bespoke curriculum materials and expert facilitation, the programme helps build understanding, break down stereotypes, and enhance dialogue and negotiation skills.

Faiths Act Play

Where some people see only religious conflict around the world we see an alternative. Faiths Act inspires and mobilises people of faith to take action together towards the Millennium Development Goals (MGDs) - the eight international development targets that all 192 United Nations member states agreed to achieve by 2015. The values of respect, justice and compassion that the great religions share have never been more relevant or important to bring people together to build a better world.

Faiths Act is interfaith encounter via practical, hands-on initiatives, engaging grassroots communities, with a particular focus on young people as tomorrows' leaders.
