A Canvas of Experiences from Around the World

April 29, 2022
9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. EDT
Location: Online Zoom Webinar

This event showcased on-the-ground stories and case studies—shared by local faith actors—that include and also go beyond COVID-19 awareness and provision of health services. Part four of a webinar series on the theme of “Looking Back to Look Forward," this event built on webinars held on March 1, March 11, and April 1.

This session highlighted faith-inspired responses to the social and economic implications of COVID-19 on issues of women’s rights, mental health, livelihoods, misinformation, peacebuilding, and beyond. Local faith actors from Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Southern Africa, and the Arab world shared their stories with an emphasis on their opportunities and challenges during the COVID-19 response.

This event was co-sponsored by the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities (JLI), the World Faiths Development Dialogue, and the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University, with the support of the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID) as part of JLI’s Fair & Equitable Dialogues Series.
