EIFA organises numerous public events that educate, inform and provide a platform for engagement and understanding on the diversity within religious and spiritual traditions and associated multi-cultural beliefs.
For example: we annually develop an extensive programme for Interfaith Week, including formal and informal dialogues, film screenings and public talks on topics such as “Religion in the Media”.
We also organise and promote numerous public talks, formal and informal dialogues, panel events, film screenings, exhibitions, conferences on subjects such as Islamophobia and ‘Science and Religion’.
EIFA has played a lead - or supporting & co-ordinating role - in the visits to Scotland by eminent religious and spiritual leaders such as the Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Bhai Sahib Mohinder Singh, Chief Rabbi David Rosen, Sir Joan Chittister, Archbishop Abuna Elias Chacour, and other distinguished persons such as Arun Gandhi, Prof Tariq Ramadan, Karen Armstrong, Nobel Prize winner Mairead Corrigan Maguire and many others.
We have often organised, or assisted in organising, the surrounding educational events to these eminent visits.
