Thinkers & Doers in co-production with the Institut Fran├žais in the United Arab Emirates, and in collaboration with Warehouse421 are honoured to invite you to the next CONVERSATION, the cycle of events in Abu Dhabi dedicated to innovation and creation.

The talk's theme will be:

Tolerance and intercultural dialogue, as a driver for peace

While tolerance and inter-cultural dialogue are more crucial than ever in an increasingly interconnected world, it is constantly challenged across the globe.

This talk will bring together three major personalities of the Arab and Europe civil society to explore ways for education and culture to build bridges across differences. Closing the Year of Tolerance in the UAE, focused on building a tolerant society that believes in the importance of human communication, this conversation will ask: 

How can we better embrace diversity as an opportunity, not a burden?
