  The goal of the International Year  is to make the rapprochement of cultures the hallmark of all policy-making at local, national, regional and international levels, involving the greatest number of relevant stakeholders.

In New Zealand, our first activities to celebrate the International  Year for the Rapprochement of Cultures were:

  • the launch of the UNESCO Chair of Inter-religious Understanding and Relations at Victoria University, Wellington; and
  • preparatory work towards a workshop on interfaith in the Pacific Region.
