G20 Interfaith and PaRD Annual Forum on Religion and Sustainable Development 2024​

19 to 22 August 2024 in Brasilia, Brazil

The Annual Forum

The G20 Interfaith Forum (IF20) and the International Partnership on Religion and Sustainable Development (PaRD) are co-organising their respective Annual Forums from August 19 to 22 in Brasilia, Brazil. Under the theme “Leave No One Behind: The Well-Being of the Planet and Its People,” this global gathering will bring together a diverse array of stakeholders, including from various faith and Indigenous traditions and other civil society organisations, representatives from governments, multilateral entities, academia, and developmental experts.

Priority Areas

The Annual Forum is inspired by Brazil’s G20 theme: “Building a just world and a sustainable planet”. Aligned with the priorities of Brazil during its G20 Presidency 2024, and with the key themes of both PaRD and IF20, the joint event will contribute to all three priority topics identified by the G20 Presidency:

  1. Fight against hunger, poverty, and inequality, including food security, health equity including mental health, children’s well-being, gender equality, human trafficking, and Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB).

  2. Three dimensions of sustainable development (economic, social, and environmental), including environmental stewardship, crisis response and preparedness, reforming economic and prosperity paradigms as well as education systems to strengthen values that foster holistic well-being, cyclic thinking and social cohesion.

  3. Reform of the global governance system, including the G20 common framework on debt, anti-corruption efforts and climate finance.

Participation

In-person participation in the IF20 and PaRD Annual Forum 2024 is by invitation only. All PaRD members are invited. If members have not yet received an invitation, please contact the PaRD Secretariat for assistance at info@pard.international
