URI Europe participated in the First Symposium on Interfaith and Intercultural Dialogue, “Connecting Actions” at Salle Paris at the FIAP, November 23-25, 2016, sharing best practices on citizens, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, and setting the stage for collaborative action!
The conference was held to overcome the tendency to stigmatize Muslims, Jews, and immigrants, and how to deconstruct stereotypes. Participants examined how to be the change you want to be in the world, and how to deal with radicalization. They discussed sharing the pain, their goals, and how to best exchange experiences and build their network. They shared common toolkits, declarations, common identities and grounds, and best practices.
