“The World Parliament of Religions is a multicultural and multi-religious convention held at the end of the 19th century in Chicago, Illinois. The First Parliament convened on September 11, 1893. The Art Institute of Chicago under the leadership of John Henry Barrows and was opened by Theodore Roosevelt who was then a Civil Service Commissioner. The Second Parliament was held on the same day in 1896 under the direction of James R. Tully. This Chicago Parliament of Religions was the longest-running international religious forum, until its dissolution in 1939.”
“The WPC16 Dashboard can be used to login to the World Parliament of Religions’ Dashboard, which is a cataloging system hosting all events and news from the World Parliament of Religions.”
The event’s official website is www.wpc16.org.
The World Parliament of Religions is a convention in which all people of all races, religions, and beliefs come together to discuss world issues such as:
-Peace Between Nations
…and many more! The WPR offers sessions for attendees to learn about different cultures around the globe. Apart from the Parliamentary Sessions, there were two other main events at the WPR: the Interfaith Expo and Ignite 16 Youth Program.
The WPC16 Dashboard can be used to log in to the World Parliament of Religions’ Dashboard, which is a cataloging system hosting all events and news from the World Parliament of Religions. The Dashboard is design so that the people of all religions and non-religions can be included in the convention. If a person has an account on the Dashboard. Then they will have access to more information about their religion or culture. This can include prayers, meditation, holidays, history, and more.
The WPC16 Dashboard is accessible to people of any religion and culture, but they must have an account on the Dashboard to access their information.
There is a section on the website where viewers can request an account, and then they will have three weeks to edit their own profile. Once this is completed, then the account will become active for one year; if it is not renewed after a year, then it will be deleted.
The WPC16 Dashboard is the platform for education on religions, cultures, and interfaith issues. It hosts sessions, events, and news about the WPR; this includes the Parliamentary Sessions.
The World Parliament of Religions is a multicultural convention. If people attend this convention, they are required to wear the headscarf of their religion as a reflection of their belief that none may be better than any other religion or culture.
The WPC16 Dashboard is a multi-cultural platform that not only helps attendees at the convention. But also those who do not have access to the convention itself. If someone wishes to attend the WPC16, but cannot due to: economic status, distance from their home, or some other reason. then they can still learn about their culture and participate in the Parliamentary Sessions. This will allow them to engage in interfaith dialogue instead of being forced to live within one culture.
The WPC16 Dashboard can be accessed from a computer, tablet, or smartphone. It is available in English, French, Spanish, and Arabic.
For the most part, the website is easy to use. The only issue that I have seen so far is that there are currently no phone numbers or email addresses on the website.
The WPC16 Dashboard offers visitors a cataloging system of religions and cultures on the World Parliament of Religions’ Dashboard.
The Dashboard is easy to use and the interface is clear. When a person goes to the WPC16 website. They can access the Dashboard and once they log in, they will be able to see their culture or religion’s name on the top of their dashboard. The user can then click on the link for the culture or religion that they wish to read more about. From there, there are many different categories of things that can be found within your culture’s profile on the Dashboard. There is an option for “Religion”, “Culture”, “Event Calendar”, and many more options. The user can click on these options and read about their culture and religion in detail.
The WPC16 Dashboard is an open platform that allows people to learn about other cultures and religions. If a person wishes to register on the website, then they must follow a few simple instructions. The instructions are clear and easy to understand, so I will not go into detail about them; instead, you can take a look at the FAQs at https://wpc16.org/faq/.
