Introduction to the ICF web site
Realizing the importance of building religious unity in the Asian region, the
Interfaith Cooperation Forum (ICF) was formed to facilitate the examination of
different religious perspectives on the root causes of some of the threats and
conflicts we experience in community today such as poverty, consumptive
lifestyles, and unjust distribution of land.
Interfaith Cooperation supports regional religious partnerships in working together for the transformation of society. It is an endeavour to find alternatives through listening, learning, and discerning messages from the grassroots and the development of cooperative efforts to achieve these alternatives together through involvement and action.

New to this site
We have added a new component to the ICF website entitled the Online Resource Library. Our goal is to make
resources available on areas of interfaith dialogue. Your contributions to this
portion of the site would be most appreciated. Please contact the ICF
Coordinator if you have any relevant materials. The Online Resource Library
is under construction and will be updated and developed as a stage by stage process.
Please check back regularly for access to more resources.
The School of Peace has come to a close for another year. The Final Report for 2008 as well as some photos can be found in the SOP section.
The blog continues to be accessible through the Additional Reading section. Many of the other reports and written resources will be relocated to the Online Resource Library.
We would continue to appreciate your assistance in developing the Interfaith Museum. The museum's purpose is to house religious symbols along with an explanation regarding their spiritual significance for different faiths. Please contact the ICF Coordinator with any suggestions you have for this section.
