Label: Cooperation Circle Info

15 Members

Traditions: Christian, Hindu

Action Area: Interfaith and Intercultural Understanding and Dialogue

Region: Europe

Website: http://www.bzn.be

Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to bring people together through meetings, dialogue, exchange and cooperation and empowering actions.

VPiD was launched in 2007 at the big interfaith concert in Antwerp, where URI Europe members and URI's Global Council were present, together with 1200 people. We witnessed a beautiful symphony of music, dance, prayer and testimonies from people of diverse faiths. This was also broadcast live over the internet. VPiD is now based in Heusden, which is the most multicultural city in Flanders. The team is working in cooperation with the city hall of Heusden to develop a program for intercultural and interfaith discussion. Living Values Education (LVE) will be used in a program for the entire community, but with a focus on diversity and interfaith and intercultural exchange. We aim to create a network for young & old, profit & non-profit, religious & non religious. The website will be open to all interfaith efforts in Flanders. In this way people who have a small or big interfaith organization or group can introduce themselves. The website is meant to be a platform and forum for activists in interfaith and intercultural issues.

Our dream is to offer a platform that makes a difference, and to make our region a point of reference for interreligious dialogue.
