RDC Research Projects

The Trust Board is happy to support the following two RDC 2021 Research Projects:

  1. The national Religious Literacy survey
    The survey will gain evidence of the level of religious literacy in the population. It will seek to discover the level of people’s knowledge of different religious communities and their awareness and experience of those communities in their context. It will also ask about people’s understanding of the role that religion plays in a society and the impact of religion on people’s lives. The final results and report are due in August 2021.
  2. ‘Guide for Disaster Resilience for Diverse Religious Communities’
    This project is now underway in partnership with Auckland Council Emergency Management. The task is to produce a ‘Guide for Disaster Resilience for Diverse Religious Communities’. A series of hui for consultation with religious communities will take place in different areas of the city as part of the process.
