The International Conference on Cohesive Societies 2019 brought together scholars, community leaders, policymakers, including religious and interfaith leaders from around the world, to explore and understand key issues, share best practices, generate discussion, and build bridges and networks to further the cause of social harmony. With the theme “Many Communities, One Shared Future”, the conference offered a platform for conversations on forging stronger interfaith understanding and developing new ideas to foster greater harmony in societies.

Supported by Temasek Foundation, the event commenced with dinner followed by conference proceedings, featuring plenaries and breakout sessions, as well as community learning journeys.
