International Muslim-Christian Consultation “Transforming Communities”

Muslim and Christian leaders as well as scholars and interfaith practitioners will gather in Geneva, Switzerland for the international consultation "Transforming Communities: Christians and Muslims Building a Common Future".

The consultation is being jointly planned, funded and convened by the World Council of Churches (WCC) and several Muslim organizations.

The participants will address three key issues in the present context of Muslim-Christian relations:

• Beyond Majority and Minority

• From Conflict to Compassionate Justice: Building Ecologies of Peace

• Learning to overcome; formulating educational tools to resolve issues

The consultation is expected to identify and address issues of common concern and provide guidance to enable cooperation between Muslims and Christians at all levels, including faith-inspired approaches for joint Christian-Muslim action.
