On Friday February 3 we held a Conference on the human right to religious freedom in the framework of the World Interfaith Harmony Week. We want to create a space to emphasize the imperative need for dialogue of different denominations and religions to increase mutual understanding, harmony and cooperation among people and to show that the moral imperatives of all religions, beliefs and beliefs include Peace, tolerance and mutual understanding. This act has the support of the General Directorate of United Nations and Human Rights, under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Journey begins at 11.00 with the reception and presentation by the President of Justice and Peace Spain, Eduard Ibáñez. Then at 12.30 the Director of the Pluralism and Coexistence Foundation, Rocío López González, will talk about the current situation of religious freedom in Spain. The centerpiece of the day is structured around two round tables with important representatives of the main religious denominations of our country. The table of the morning is called Cultural Looks. It will start at one o'clock in the afternoon. The moderator, Ignacio Maria Fernandez de Torres, Justice and Peace Councilor of Madrid, will propose opposing questions with dialogue to discern ways that allow the management of religious fact, as a fundamental value of human beings and creation. The afternoon table is called Camino Recorrido. It will start at 4.30 p.m. Under the moderation of Temir Naziri, Director of Cultural Programs of the Turkish House and member of the Arco Forum Association, the speakers will present examples of interfaith and interfaith collaboration in our country and its impact on society.
