The Multifaith Center of Kwantlen Polytechnic University in British Columbia, Canada, is dedicated to the WIHW concept and celebration by our 2nd annual event. We believe we are first university in Canada to start commemorating the UN resolution of King Abdullah II and encourage many other universities and organizations to promote this week of emphasizing peace and harmony in every community in the world. It has grown in the 5 years from a few hundred in 2012 to almost a thousand such events in 2015.

We are most pleased to be a part of the solution and not the problem we face with exploitation, separateness and stereotypes. We are fundamentally caring humans with primate altruism that will naturally flourish in a safe world. We are dedicated to focusing on interfaith and secular harmony and that one can do good everyday.
