Conflict resolution and reconciliation is a powerful way for two or more parties to find a peaceful solution to a disagreement. The voice of our youth has always provided a progressive and creative perspective.

What possibilities exist in conflict?  What are the ways youth can effectively communicate? How do we find a common voice?

With these simple questions, we invite you to be part of an important conversation about the role of youth in conflict resolution, reconciliation and creating a voice that can be  acknowledged by all.

The Wisdom Circle Project, “The Language of Interfaith,” explores our inter-related world from the perspective of our shared humanity no matter our age. We are fostering its growth by creating breakthrough questions, conversations, and relationships that turn dialogue into action.

The Future of Conflict Resolution through the Eyes of Youth is a World Cafe initiative that consciously fosters inter-generational collaboration and partnership. We believe it will take all of us -- one generation alive together now -- to effectively address this shared concern in front of us.  We actively welcome participants of all ages to add their voice to this conversation.

This conversation will help us create interspiritual solutions around the above questions. It will also give us tools for concrete action in our own lives and communities. We can share our collective wisdom, new insights and knowledge about how to make our exchanges more mindful.
