The Parliament of World Religions has brought together 10,000 people, from 80 nations, and over 50 religious backgrounds in Salt Lake City, Utah to discuss issues relevant to all of their traditions. The gathering was festive with exhibitions, music, interfaith dialog, a food court, and an art show with films and performances scattered among the myriad of speakers. Important environmental issues, particularly climate change, were a keynote theme throughout the Parliament and a concluding declaration will be presented at the UN climate negotiations this December in Paris.. There are a few selections of visual elements observed over the five day event:
