Young people and the issues they face will be the focus of an upcoming event hosted by the different religious organisations in Singapore.
The secular event, which will also zoom in on the importance of religious harmony, is slated to be held next year and could be a dialogue, a conference or a series of talks.
Plans for the event, called the Youth Assembly for Peace and Harmony, are still at a preliminary stage, with representatives from five different groups meeting for the first time last Friday.
They were Muslim missionary society Jamiyah Singapore, Buddhist society the Singapore Soka Association, the Hindu Endowment Board, the Mahakaruna Buddhist Society and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Dr Mohamed Nawab Mohamed Osman, nominated chairman of the working group for the event, said that the group hoped to reach out to more people by making it secular.
