Religion plays an integral role in the way many communities deal with trial and tragedy, a phenomenon particularly evident in the COVID-19 pandemic. In March 2020, the Berkley Center and its partners began a series of events meeting with local, regional, and international faith actors and global health experts to understand the ways that faith communities would impact and be impacted by the spread of and response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Part three of a webinar series on the theme of “Looking Back to Look Forward” and following a webinar on March 11 that reflected on global themes at the two-year mark of the COVID-19 pandemic, this session caught up with local and regional faith actors who previously joined webinars in 2020 as part of the Religious Responses to COVID-19 project and asked how the pandemic has evolved in their context since then. This webinar featured insights from leaders in Sri Lanka, Liberia, Senegal, and Latin America, who contextualized the similarities and differences of religious responses to COVID-19 around the world.
This event was co-sponsored by the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities, the World Faiths Development Dialogue, and the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University.
