International Symposium: Cultivating Wisdom, Harvesting Peace
Griffith University Multi-Faith Centre
Brisbane, Australia
10-13 of August 2005

This Summary of Recommendations encompass all the rich contributions of participants over the four days of dialogues and sharing, and reflect the spirit and main ideas of shared understanding. The recommendations are based on:

  1. the interfaith circles' discussion and recommendations for action as reported in the closing plenary;

  2. key ideas from the papers presented by the keynote and panel speakers on all the themes;

  3. notes and ideas of workshop facilitators; and

  4. feedback after the Symposium from a number of delegates.

Rather than a brief general list of selected ideas and recommendations, it was decided instead to prepare a rapporteur's summary that provides some detail on the recommendations, giving enough substantive content that can guide specific policy changes and actions. Thus, it is hoped that this format will facilitate efforts as well as the work of interested educators and policy makers worldwide to advocate for implementation of the recommendations in their respective nations, institutions and communities.
