On 20 October a group of religious leaders, staff and
members of Scottish Inter Faith Council met in
for an exchange programme between the Interfaith Centre of New York, the
Scottish Inter Faith Council and the UNESCO Centre of Catalonia’s Department
for Inter-religious Dialogue. The aim of the programme was for 8 delegates from
each organisation to meet to share good practice in inter faith initiatives in
their respective cities.
UNESCO Catelonia, who hosted the trip to Barcelona, a non religious organisation
promoted the creation of the Association for Inter-religious Dialogue (AUDI), a
multi faith organisation bringing together more than 200 people from diverse
religious traditions. Inter faith work in Spain has greatly increased in the
last ten years due to changing demographics with immigrants arriving from
across the globe. Miriam Diez Bosch was one of the two journalists invited to
share her experience as a journalist covering Religion in an International
Gathering. She asked the Religious and Civil Leaders not to react only to Media
provocations but to be proactive and clever enough to propose Journalistic
“good practices” as material for news. She also pointed out that there is a
lack of female voices in the news and encouraged the various leaders present to
be more visible. Participants blamed some media for being too biased against
religious issues but agreed to find new ways of promoting good relations
between Faiths and Religious Journalists.
