Tony Blair will be hosting a series of seminars and speeches in London over the autumn. Organised by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, in association with DFID, Islamic Relief, WorldVision and Oxfam, they will cover the subject theme: ‘New Perspectives on Faith and Development’.
The goal is to explore the vital role that faith can play in all aspects of international development and speakers will represent a variety of faith and secular perspectives. Each seminar will look at the role of faith and the contribution of the faith communities to global development.
Each event will be held in London, though full details will not be released until closer to the time. You can register your interest to attend these events to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, 2nd September 2009.
