Netværk for Religion og Udvikling holder seminar om tro og mad


Fredag, 31. marts 2017 -
9:00 til 13:00


Bjælkeloftet, Diakonissestiftelsen, Peter Bangs Vej 1, Frederiksberg

Social norms and practices regarding production and consumption of food are influenced and, to some degree, shaped by religious values. It is therefore relevant and important to address harmful practises as well as to promote positive change through reviewing and engaging with basic normative values.

The seminar will present and discuss links between faith and food, and introduce examples on how faith-based and other actors approach and work with issues related to right to food.

The SDG 2 seminar is a part of several seminars with the purpose to address – through professional capacity and knowledge building – NGO’s ability to analyse and navigate in different contexts where religion plays an important role in development work.

The seminars are organized by the Network for Religion and Development founded by ADRA Denmark, DanChurchAid, Caritas Denmark, Danish Muslim Aid, Danmission, Danish Institute for Human Rights, Centre for African Studies, Danish Mission Council and Danish Mission Council Development Department. The initiative is supported financially by Danida through Globalt Fokus.

To register for the seminar, please contact Anne Cathrine Holmen, intern in International Department: [email protected] – no later than March 24th, 2017.
