The King Hamad Global Centre for Peaceful Coexistence will organise a conference that promotes peaceful coexistence under the theme “Ignorance is the Enemy of Peace” on December 7-8.
It will be held under the patronage of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa with participation from major higher education institutions regionally and internationally.
The centre held its first meeting under the chairmanship of the Board of Trustees Chairman of the King Hamad Global Centre for Peaceful Coexistence, Dr Shaikh Khalid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, to discuss the objectives of the conference, the desired results and to identify the most prominent axes of the event, while reviewing the quality of local and international participations.
The two-day conference will include four main dialogue sessions focusing on: integrating the concepts of coexistence and acceptance of difference and diversity in university curricula, the essential role of enabling educational environments in raising a generation of peace, the experience of the King Hamad Chair for Interfaith Dialogue and Peaceful Coexistence courses at Sapienza University and the development of religious education as a key point to promote coexistence.
