On March 6th, 2018, a discussion on The Impact of Media on Freedom of Religion or Belief took place as part of the 37th Human Rights Council (HRC 37) in Geneva. During the event, The Freedom of Religion or Belief (FORB) Learning Platform was launched. It is an initiative of the Nordic Ecumenical Network on International Freedom of Religion or Belief (NORFORB) and provides resources to help individuals, communities and decision-makers learn, reflect upon and promote freedom of religion or belief for all. It includes resources for personal study and for educators and facilitators. Through learning, the platform seeks to contribute to building a social, political and legal culture of freedom of religion or belief for all from the grassroots up and the top down. The learning platform has been developed with the input and advice from both secular and different faith based organisation, as well as international experts.
