The event empowered and raised the aspirations of 100 young people aged 18-25 years old (the average age was 21!), representing all 32 boroughs of London, from all faiths and none and provied wonderful opportunity to celebrate faith in the centre of our vibrant and diverse capital.

The young people came together to discuss how they best thought they could bring faith and non faith communities together in London for the betterment of all our communities – and a number of them are now putting plans together to implement their ideas.

The event was covered by ITN Evening News and following:
