Interreligious Activities and Initiatives
With diversity and difference we learn and progress
The initiative is to organize a training workshop entitled “Diversity and Difference Learn and Progress” for students enrolled on leave on 5, 6 and 7 November 2019.
The students were selected on the basis of nationality and specialization in the study as well as the region of origin for Tunisian students, to ensure the representation of this first core of the various segments of students enrolled on leave at the Ezzitouna University. Registrars have also been targeted to continue their training to ensure their continued presence in the University for at least the next five years, as the proposed initiative is the first building block to establish a program aimed at promoting social and common peace, spreading the values of tolerance, breaking stereotypes, and taking cultural diversity as a source of progress and excellence.
The workshop focused on the following points:
– Principles of dialogue and acceptance of difference;
– Mechanisms for constructive dialogue;
– Establish a culture of joint work and cohesion of the group.
