21 for 21: young interfaith leaders to be named

09 November 2018

NEXT week, we will announce the 21 young people who are thought best to exemplify interfaith endeavour.

As part of the 21 for 21 initiative — 21 young leaders for the 21st century — the Church Times teamed up with Jewish News, British and Muslim TV, and Coexist House to find seven young Christians, seven Jews, and seven Muslims who have distinguished themselves in interfaith activities (News 27 April, 4 May).

Nearly 100 nominations were received, and an eminent panel of judges chose the 21 who most impressed them. The chairman of the judges, Sir Bernard Rix, who also chairs Coexist House, said afterwards: “It is inspirational to learn about the invaluable interfaith work being undertaken by so many outstanding young people, strengthening belief that our future society may live in the peace of comprehensive and equal coexistence.”

An event is planned early in the new year to bring the 21 together, and it is hoped that they will be available to inspire others to work across the different religions.

Profiles of all 21 will appear in the Church Times and Jewish News next week. BMTV plans to produce a documentary about them.
