The Sydney Statement

The Sydney Statement

The Sydney Statement: Building Bridges Between Believers from Different Religions is an interfaith charter for Sydney.  It is inspired by similar interfaith statements from other cities e.g. The Athens Declaration 2015, The Beirut Declaration 2017 and The Washington Declaration 2018.  Like the interfaith statements which inspired it, The Sydney Statement is named after a city.  However, it is relevant to NSW, Australia and the world.  Among those interfaith statements, The Sydney Statement is unique in that it is led by youth who share their dream for the future.

The Sydney Statement is published on a dedicated website, www.thesydneystatement.org.au, where people of all faiths and worldviews can sign up to live by its values and principles and to carry out its commitments to interfaith action for building bridges between believers from different religions.  The website also has resources on interreligious dialogue and suggested concrete actions for carrying out the values, principles and commitments of The Sydney Statement.
