The World Congress of Faiths works to develop understanding, co-operation and respect between people of different faiths.
Teachers find that all the activities of the WCF can be helpful, especially the conferences and lectures on various topics. Recently Moral Maze style evenings have been held on ethical issues that could help with similar debates in schools. Because of the impartial approach but insistence of respect for all faiths WCF events can be particularly helpful in developing understanding of issues.
Teachers in training have particularly benefited from the opportunities to have exposure to other faiths, through visits and retreats and in particular, meeting people of other faiths in a relaxed setting.
Interreligious Insight, a journal of dialogue and engagement helps keep teachers in touch with inter faith issues and the newsletter One Family advises on forthcoming events in the UK inter faith scene.
