Introducing the 2019/20 Interfaith Tour!

URI Associate Director of Global Programs, Matt Youde, with the members of the Fourth Interfaith Tour at their farewell reception in Paris on Monday: from left to right: Matt, Floraine, Abderrahim, Adèle and Vincent.

A team of four members from Coexister, a youth-led interfaith movement based in France and a URI Cooperation Circle (member organization), begins their 8-month tour of the world today! They will visit interfaith groups and projects, hoping to learn from them and bring inspiring stories and best practices back with them.

As with previous Interfaith Tours (this is the fourth), URI Cooperation Circles in different countries will be helping to host the team as they travel, and the host groups will share their work and experience with the traveling Interfaith Tour members.

Their first stop is in Bosnia, where they will be meeting with members of two URI Cooperation Circles: Youth for Peace and Balkan as a Soul Bridge. You can follow their progress on their website, Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram.

If you see that they are visiting your part of the world, you're most welcome and encouraged to reach out through their social media channels and invite them to meet you! (Click the the Tour itinerary .PDF below.)
