What is Interfaith Cooperation?

Definition of Interfaith

The Interfaith Youth Core defines interfaith cooperation as "the engagement of people from diverse traditions, such as Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Secular Humanism, Judaism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism, Baha’i, atheist, agnostic, and all other religious, non-religious, and philosophical traditions."

Multifaith partnerships aim to form mutually inspiring relationships that take action for the common good while showing respect for religous and non-religous diversity.  Focus is placed on the values of service, compassion, and hospitality.
