29 Apr – 1 May 2017
The Southeast Asian region is arguably the most religiously diverse region in the world. All the major religions of the world including Islam, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Judaism have had a historical presence in the region. This religious diversity has been a source of strength for the region. Adherents of different religions have come together to worship, share common festivities and cultures. However, the state of inter-faith relations has been affected by various political developments. In this climate of religious conflicts and differences, it is crucial for more to be done to eradicate misunderstanding and fear.
The exposure to unfiltered information on multiple platforms, and often at real-time speed, has enabled both positive and negative engagement on the topics of faith and its attributed factor in rising global altercations and violence. During the past decade, new models of community engagement and social action have emerged; crowdsourcing, co-creations and hackathons. Through the InX Forum, Critical Xchange (CRIX) aims to utilise these modern tools to create change at a societal level and nurture and develop young faith leaders (as well as pathway leaders i.e. atheists and agnostics) in the region to strengthen inter-faith and inter-pathway relations.
