The first National Interfaith Youth Forum was held in 2008. It focused on Creative Encounters Generating Change. Delegates endorsed the Statement on Religious Diversity, and supported activities to mark the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the development of a national youth interfaith network, and regional youth interfaith councils. The importance of developing educational resources on religious diversity was acknowledged, and youth input was sought into policy and legislative changes.
