World Interfaith Harmony Week



Noting the Resolution adopted by General Assembly 65/5 which proclaims the first week of February every year the World Interfaith Harmony Week between all religions, faiths and beliefs, CRCS and ICRS-Yogya organized an event to celebrate the week. The theme was "Youth, Religion and Disaster". The participants were the representatives from religious students organization in Universitas Gadjah Mada and other representatives from religious-based universities in Yogyakarta, which were State Islamic University Sunan Kalijaga, Duta Wacana Christian University, and Sanata Dharma University.

The participants had a great chance to directly interact with local people in Dusun Bronggang, a village which was fairly impacted by the Merapi eruption. At the end of that inspiring day, the participants were engaged in an interesting presentation session where they were free to use any kinds of media to present their view about the activity.
