International Relations and Exchange Program (IREP)

The Troth's International Relations and Exchange Program (IREP) was formed to:

* facilitate and participate in international discussion, collaboration, and frith-building among inclusive Heathen groups around the world

* support Troth members in and outside the US

* engage in interfaith dialogue and promote interreligious harmony

* promote and support inclusive Heathenry internationally

To accomplish these efforts we have:

Co-hosted Frith Forge an international frith building conference among inclusive Asatru/Heathen organizations and individuals. Held in Werder/Petzow GERMANY. October 2017. Frith Forge 2017 was directly followed by a Heathen Sacred Sites Tour of Germany on October 8-14, 2017.   Frith Forge 2020 was hosted as an online event in August 2020.  We are hopeful to host additional Frith Forges every three or four years or so. Meanwhile please enjoy the Frith Forge YouTube channel where you can view many of the FF2020 presentations, and find videos from our follow up discussions, and registration links to upcoming discussions throughout the year.

The next Frith Forge was going to be held on August 16-19, 2020 at the beloved Raven's Knoll, a Heathen owned campground in Eganville, Ontario CANADA. However due to COVID-19 we are moving the conference to a 1 day event on Zoom on August 15, 2020. More information can be found here..

We also co-sponsor a booth at The Parliament of World’s Religions in collaboration with Alliance for Inclusive Heathenry. We had strong representation at the 2018 Parliament in Toronto Canada.
