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 Asatru/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. We are hopeful to host additional Frith Forges every three or four years or so. 

The next Frith Forge will be held on August 16-19, 2020 at the beloved Raven's Knoll, a Heathen owned campground in Eganville, Ontario CANADA. The website for more information and to register is expected to be available starting in January 2020.

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.
