Global - World Interfaith Harmony Week, Feb 2012

The General Assembly... "Proclaims the first week of February every year the World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW) between all religions, faiths and beliefs." - UN General Assembly resolution A/RES/65/5, adopted 20 October 2010

The World Harmony Run supports the goals of WIHW.

SEE:  UN Initiative /World Interfaith Harmony Week

Wherever possible, WHR national and international team members join in local events which encourage interfaith harmony throughout the year.


"Passing the Harmony Torch is a simple, tangible and powerful way to express love of one's neighbour. Conveying this message of interfaith harmony and understanding in churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and other places of worship will surely help foster a culture of peace and a growing feeling of universal oneness." " -Davidson Hepburn, President of UNESCO General Conference (2009 -2011) - See YouTube video with English captions / subtitles: http://youtu.be/maPwzfHtASQ
