The Boroondara Interfaith Network is a network of people from the different religions, faiths and traditions in the City of Boroondara. It aims to create awareness and dialogue through building relationships that nurture harmony, and deepen understanding and respect in the community.
Through the Network, Council works with interested members of these communities to deliver interfaith gatherings and activities for the municipality. This network is a forum for Council to build relationships with and between community and faith leaders, organisations and residents of diverse backgrounds.
It aims to:
- Foster harmonious relationships between Boroondara community members of different religious and cultural backgrounds and perspectives.
- Develop an inclusive and open network of interested faith community members and leaders representative of the diversity in the City of Boroondara.
- Assist Council to communicate, consult and engage more effectively with Boroondara faith and cultural communities.
Please see the Terms of Reference 2013-15 for further details about the network and its operations.
