Interreligious Activities and Initiatives
Workshop on Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue, Human Rights and Peace
These workshops look into the strength of scholars and youth in who are committed to ending violence among religions and creating cultures of peace, justice, reconcile and healing in the conflict resolution. The framework to be used will be the inter-religious and intercultural dialogue design as promoted by KAICIID. These workshops will be complemented with the KAICIID. For the initiative, I have selected different layers of educational institutions. Majorly it is inclined to Kolkata and New Delhi- the two major multi-ethnic city in India.
IRD and ICD for prevention of Hate Speech and protection of Sacred Sites and Cultural Heritage- Role of Youth in India and Nigeria
The initiative will bring together religious and cultural leaders from some selected states in India and Nigeria to create youth alertness towards hate speech and incitation before and during election for both India and Nigeria, engaging in interreligious and intercultural dialogue. The initiative will involve first an onsite interreligious/intercultural dialogue for promoting peace at the national level after which the participants will be engaged in an online interreligious and intercultural dialogue with other religious leaders in India and Nigeria respectively in other to build bridges for promoting global understanding, peace building and adding strength to the efforts being made at national level. The dialogue will target two main objectives; contribute to peace building to safeguard from hate speech and preservation of sacred holy sites. This initiative will prove how youth from two different socio-cultural backgrounds needs to be activated to solve the global crisis with similar nature. These activities will be followed by strategic promotion on social media to reach and influence a larger audience.
Young Dialogue- IRD internship in Social Media
The youth and the experts who are using new social media and the leaders of some of the most successful online forums for interreligious and intercultural dialogue made it clear that new social media is not magic. It does not erase all the barriers that inhibit dialogue between people of different faiths and cultures. Nor does it eliminate the misunderstandings that occur both online and offline. Some of the successful projects went through a period of trial and error before finding a formula that really worked. It will take time to build trust but the approach through which, one can able to find an appropriate resolution for the conflict resolution and transformation.
