Join the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) for a virtual “watch party” featuring short films submitted by the global community as part of UNAOC’s campaign #forSafeWorship to safeguard religious sites and worshippers worldwide.
Watch the livestream: forsafeworship.org/watchparty
In 2020, UNAOC launched a Global Call to Action #forSafeWorship to support the UN Plan of Action to Safeguard Religious Sites, which was developed by UNAOC and launched by the UN Secretary-General in September 2019. This communications campaign is meant to engage the global youth and faith communities in celebrating the universality of religious sites as symbols of our shared humanity, history, and traditions. People worldwide have participated in the campaign by submitting short videos about their relationships and personal, emotional connections to religious sites. The watch party will feature a collection of ten short videos from around the globe. To learn more about the campaign #forSafeWorship and submit your own video, visit https://forsafeworship.org/.
