Building Bridges through interfaith sharing provides an opportunity for young people to share their experiences of faith or life-values with each other. It is an initiative of The WellSpring Centre, a spirituality centre based in Ashburton, Melbourne, Australia.
Aims & Objectives
The Building Bridges through Interfaith Dialogue project aims to assist secondary students of different faiths, religions, cultures and values in Years 10 and 11 to build bridges of trust and friendship. They learn key skills of dialogue and share personal experiences of their lives which have shaped them. These serve as foundations to negotiate, respect and engage with each other’s differences and commonalities and are important qualities for leaders of our country into the future.
