Offered by


This three week residential course is designed to enable participants to encounter each other in mutual respect, to learn together, and to challenge and overcome stereotypes. While fully respecting and affirming each particular faith identity, the overall question to be explored is: What can we, as people of faith, do to respond and to overcome, the pressing challenges of our time as violence and conflict and build together mutually accountable societies based on respect and cooperation? This seminar is co-organized by the Ecumenical Institute Bossey, the WCC Programme on Inter-religious Dialogue and Cooperation, the World Student Christian Federation, the Inter-knowing Foun-dation (Muslim) and the Racines et Sources Foundation (Jewish).
