About the conference theme

In public discourse, religions do more harm than good with respect to the rights of women, stereotype gender roles, and sexual minorities. But this is not the whole story. Religions and worldviews are super diverse. What does the interreligious and intra-religious dialogue look like regarding issues of homosexuality and gender roles for example? What do feminism and masculinity mean in discussions about gender and faith? And what is the role is eco-feminism in the debate on religion and gender?

This conference invites you to an open-minded interaction with people who find inspiration from a diverse spectrum of sources, religious and non-religious.
