The Fuji Declaration at the United Nations
Mrs. Saionji introduces the Fuji Declaration during World Interfaith Harmony Week celebration at the U.N., February 3, 2016
Mrs. Saionji joined other distinguished government and U.N. speakers, religious, and heads of international organizations to discuss the importance of interfaith solidarity in ensuring the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The event was organized by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations in partnership with the Committee of Religious NGOs at the United Nations.
The heart of her speech was the introduction of the Fuji Declaration, launched in May 2015. She encouraged people in all fields to be part of the Fuji Declaration, to bring forth the divine spark that links all people in unity while encouraging our diversity to shine through.
What would relationships between religions or governments look like if we all understood that every individual has this divine spark?
Could this understanding open the door to a new era of unity in diversity that empowers the work of the United Nations?”

“Earlier that same week, a smaller group had gathered in Tokyo at the United Nations University hailing from different corners of the earth, across different disciplines. What I hold most dear of this gathering is the importance of designing and facilitating spaces for wisdom to emerge out of the uncertainty and richness of bringing very different people together to reflect on a common purpose.”
