In-person resources for Canadians, Americans, and members of the international community:

  • Discovery Week Run by the Encounter World Religions Centre, this annual course consists of lectures and visits to various sacred sites in the Greater Toronto Area. This is an incredibly rich opportunity to learn about different traditions and meet members of various traditions in their lived space. The Executive Director of the program also hosts workshops on specific traditions in cities across Canada and the US. If you would like to invite him to lead a workshop, you can contact him here.

Understanding how religious literacy impacts the global context:

  • A May 2018 panel discussion on religious literacy in global affairs with Diane L. Moore (Director, Religious Literacy Project, Harvard Divinity School), Farah Pandith (Adjunct Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations), and Chris Seiple (President Emeritus, The Institute for Global Engagement), hosted by the US Council on Foreign Relations. This conversation presents highly American specific perspectives, but it offers provoking thoughts to help various members of the public understand religious literacy at a global level.
