Our goal is to empower and inspire interfaith student leaders.
The Ripple Conference offers time to learn, engage, reflect, and share. Together we will learn about other traditions, including religious, spiritual, and secular worldviews. We will engage in social justice and interfaith dialogue by taking part in a conference-wide service project. In smaller community groups, we will share our own perspectives and process the conference experience. Other events within the conference will offer time to share music, stories, and delicious local food.
The Ripple Conference offers a balance of structured and unstructured, small and large group events to provide a unique conference experience. We don’t just want to talk about interfaith, we want to make it happen.
We leave you with the question: Where will your ripples go?
This year's theme:
Interfaith in the real world:
Cultivating community cooperation
Ripple recognizes that Interfaith is not just present for a weekend or in facilitated spaces, but something that goes with us into our everyday lives, which is why our theme this year focuses on practical applications of interfaith. Who do we interact with most and how can we more intentional about those interactions? How can interfaith be a foundation for relationships? What would our world look like if we were in a constant pursuit of positive cooperation not despite but because of difference? The Ripple Conference 2020 will be an encouraging space to explore these questions and more with a community brought together by a passion for interfaith. Whether you have been doing this work your whole life, or are brand new, we want participants to leave with enthusiasm about looking for opportunities to engage in interfaith in their lives and feeling equipped to do so.
