In 1993 she was an advisor to the Council for the Parliament of the World´s Religions, where she gave a major presentation at the Parliament itself. Since 2009 she has championed the inclusion of faith-based organisations at the UN COP conferences resulting in a highly valued platform for the spiritual voice and perspective. She continues to serve on the Board of Religious Leaders of the Elijah Interfaith Institute.

Heart of Interreligious Connections, Scotland (2022)Water for All Conference, International Peace Palace, The Hague, 2021

Each religious tradition has supported life and civilisation for thousands of years. On the surface it often seems as though our ideals are dissimilar and yet friendship is based on an understanding and acceptance of difference. There is a limited consciousness when I am attached to my body or my relations. My family isn’t just my nuclear family or the faith community that I belong to, but my family is the family of humanity. I belong to this bigger family. Only in this spiritual consciousness can we maintain the awareness of togetherness and it is by reaching out to each other in this consciousness that great friendships can be forged for the benefit of us all.”
