Summit Outcomes | The Signing of the Commitment to Global Peace

The signing of the Commitment to Global Peace by several hundred of the preeminent international leaders from many religious traditions at the Summit. (See Appendix B). The two main facets of the Commitment are: 1) Condemning all violence perpetrated in the name of religion, and 2) acknowledging the value of religious and ethnic diversity. Other commitments include acknowledging the equal partnership of men and women, calling for a global program of reforestation and seeking greater economic equity. This document is now circulating religious communities around the world for ongoing signing.
