Interreligious Activities and Initiatives
Bridge Builders Virtual Seminar 2020
The Bridge Builder Virtual Seminar 2020 consisted of three virtual meetings of two hours each , held once a month. The three meetings had the following work structure: The main coordinators began with a brief explanation of each topic, using different modalities (powerpoint, videos ) and then the participants were divided into rooms, at the end of the meeting it was done a pooling. Six rooms were formed, each room had six participants and a young facilitator. The participants in each room were distributed in such a way that there was one person from each religion per room. In each of the meetings, the participants per room and also the facilitators changed, so that by the end of the seminar each of the members had worked with almost all the seminar participants. The week before the start of the seminar, each of the participants received at their home address a toolbox with materials to work on the three virtual meetings. The dynamics of each room were inspired by the DialoGo game provided by Kaiciid. In the first meeting we worked the topic Identity , in the second we worked on Diversity topic and in the third and last meeting we worked on Dialogue topic. At the end of the three meetings, the participants received by email certificates of participation and theoretical material about everything seen in the meetings. At the end of each meeting, an anonymous and mandatory survey (google form) was sent by mail to be completed by each of the participants. A last meeting was planned around the month of January but unfortunately due to the sanitary conditions in Argentina it could not be held.
