The Centre for Interfaith & Cultural Dialogue at Griffith University is proud to present the first Commonwealth Conference for exploring the normative and practical leadership roles of faith communities, first peoples, and the Commonwealth of Nations in forging sustainable peace and development for our world.

Speakers from Australia, the UK, Canada, Africa, the Caribbean and elsewhere in the Commonwealth, will come together for the 3-day conference in Brisbane to discuss some of the most pressing issues dividing our world today, including the impacts of climate change, Brexit, US withdrawal from international leadership, terrorism and widening social and political polarisation.

You'll hear from last year's Nobel Peace Prize winners at the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), former MP Keith Best who works to support torture victims and asylum seekers, international military chaplains and peacekeepers as well as religious and cultural figures, academics and leaders from all over the Commonwealth.

The first day of the conference will end with a celebratory bash involving artistic performances, speeches and networking over a delicious meal.

Early-bird tickets for the Monday night gala dinner can be purchased separately for $50 or are otherwise included in the ticket price of the 3-day conference ($100).
