2019 G20 Interfaith Forum
Peace, People, Planet: Pathways Forward
June 7- 9, 2019
Location: Hotel New Otani Makuhari, Japan
The G20 Summits are a critical time and place where priority global issues are considered, and over the years a variety of engagement groups have emerged to gather input from diverse networks with relevant expertise. Beginning in Australia in 2014, the G20 Interfaith Forum has convened annually in the G20 host country, offering an platform for networks of religiously linked and faith-inspired actors to engage on global agendas. The 2019 G20 Interfaith Forum, “Peace, People, Planet: Pathways Forward,” took place at the Hotel New Otani Makuhari in Japan and tackled pressing global issues. Robust dialogue and analysis led to several tangible outcomes: a set of core recommendations that were transmitted to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan in advance of the G20 Osaka Summit and the final recommendations that emerged from the 2019 G20 Interfaith Forum, including several topics under review for the 2020 forum.
Katherine Marshall, executive director of World Faiths Development Dialogue and a senior fellow at Georgetown University's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, has been a member of the Executive Committee and actively engaged in organizing the G20 Interfaith Forum since 2017. Marshall was also a primary author on the G20 Interfaith Forum policy briefs that emerged from the 2019 meeting.
