Generative Dialogue on Peacebuilding
January 13 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm GMT
Dialogue theme: Inner Peace
Led by Mino Akhtar and Maja Nenadovic
We decided to kick off the 2022 Generative Dialogue Series on Peacebuilding by inviting you for a free-flowing session on the topic of inner peace. What is the connection between how we feel inside and our efforts in building peace in our communities? What is it that drives us to engage with conflict resolution and peacebuilding in the world, and how can we nurture this drive without letting it overwhelm us? Join us to learn, share, expand our understanding of what constitutes and sustains inner peace and how it can improve our peacebuilding practices.
About the Generative Dialogue Series on Peacebuilding
This series aims to create a learning community for peacebuilders around the globe, as we explore together and amplify our own efforts on the ground. Peacebuilding is essential in everyday lives where conflicts emerge, and transform through our interactions and way of being.
‘Peacebuilding’ comes to mind as a concept most often associated with war and post-conflict reconciliation efforts. Many members of the Academy of Professional Dialogue work in (post-) conflict contexts, using Dialogue to bridge polarization. Dialogue is used as a space for listening to diverse perspectives and creating a shared understanding of our past, present, and future. Dialogue can help bridge the divides between different ideologies, viewpoints, perspectives, politics.
The sessions in 2022 will take place on monthly basis, every 2nd Thursday of the month, lasting 90 minutes, always at the same time: 11AM-12:30PM EST, 4-5:30PM GMT, 5-6:30PM CET. Academy members and guests are welcome to join!
For more information about the series or individual sessions, contact facilitators Mino Akhtar and Maja Nenadovic.
Future dates: 10th February & 10th March
