Students at The John Hopkins University will talk with peers in Lebanon, Ecuador and Belgium about the future of Western-Muslim world relations in a live, face-to-face, video link-up. The event is part of a global initiative to commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks with citizen dialogue on how to improve Western-Muslim relations. The "Hope not Hate" initiative began last month with town hall meetings across America and is now featuring videoconferences that allow Americans to talk over live video with citizens in Europe and the Muslim world about how to build a better, safer world.
The videoconference will open with students at each site giving presentations in response to two questions: What is the long-term strategy for improving relations between the West and the Islamic world? Are the West and the Islamic world currently on the right path? Then, participants around the world will have an opportunity for interactive dialogue.
The Hope not Hate series is supported by Americans for Informed Democracy, a non-partisan, non-profit organization that seeks to engage Americans in discussion about the U.S. role in the world. See www.aidemocracy.org.
