A multi-religious organization aims at sharing a vision of peace through mutual understanding[edit]

Religions for Peace, the organizer of the conference held in Vienna in November 2013, are the world's largest multi-religious organization. Each religion represented in the organization is respected as being held sincerely by the believers of that religion. The aim of the conference was to discern and express elements of a shared positive vision of peace through the finding of shared values and consensus among common elements. The conference addressed the urgent need to "Welcome the Other" thanks to multi-religious action. In this sense, actions should ensure human dignity, promote citizenship and advance shared well-being.
