On 20 October a group of religious leaders, staff and members of Scottish Inter Faith Council met in  Barcelona for an exchange programme between the Interfaith Centre of New York, the Scottish Inter Faith Council and the UNESCO Centre of Catalonia’s Department for Inter-religious Dialogue. The aim of the programme was for 8 delegates from each organisation to meet to share good practice in inter faith initiatives in their respective cities.

UNESCO Catelonia, who hosted the trip to Barcelona, a non religious organisation promoted the creation of the Association for Inter-religious Dialogue (AUDI), a multi faith organisation bringing together more than 200 people from diverse religious traditions. Inter faith work in Spain has greatly increased in the last ten years due to changing demographics with immigrants arriving from across the globe. Miriam Diez Bosch was one of the two journalists invited to share her experience as a journalist covering Religion in an International Gathering. She asked the Religious and Civil Leaders not to react only to Media provocations but to be proactive and clever enough to propose Journalistic “good practices” as material for news. She also pointed out that there is a lack of female voices in the news and encouraged the various leaders present to be more visible. Participants blamed some media for being too biased against religious issues but agreed to find new ways of promoting good relations between Faiths and Religious Journalists.
