World Interfaith Harmony Week Prize to Melbourne

The King of Jordan – founder of the World Interfaith Harmony Week initiative at the United Nations – attended the 2018 King Abdullah II World Interfaith Harmony Week prize ceremony at Al Husseiniya Palace and presented awards to the winners. First Prize went to The Interfaith Centre of Melbourne for their event, “Who Are We in a Changing World?” The event, inspired by “Love of the Neighbour”, invited seven faith leaders to bring community members with them to meet their “neighbours” who come from diverse faiths, philosophies and cultures. Reverend Helen Summers, founder and director of the centre, and Deputy Director Nicholas Coleman received the award.

Launched by the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought in 2013, the annual prize is awarded to three activities or texts that best promote the values connected to the World Interfaith Harmony Week, which is celebrated in the first week of February and was launched by King Abdullah and unanimously adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2010.
