KAICIID-UNESCO Workshop: Social Media for Dialogue

The King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID) and UNESCO – Beirut organized a special training workshop which emphasized the role of social media in promoting values like coexistence, mutual respect and dialogue.

Social Media Coordinator at the Lebanese Development Network (LDN) and Lebanon Dialogue Initiative (LDI) Antoinette Moubarak took part in the event which gathered more than fifty young participants from Lebanon and Syria.

The Beirut training is the eighth capacity building session organized by the Centre across the region, in cooperation with partners such as UNDP, UNESCO and Al-Azhar.

Senior Program Manager for the Arab Region at KAICIID Waseem Haddad said that “this program aims at creating a kind of counter-discourse to use social media as a place of celebration of the common values that unite us all, of inclusion and pluralism.”

In turn, George Awad of UNESCO said that “the UNESCO’s work is ongoing with partners and civil society including youth and women, on combating violent extremism and resolving conflict, as well as dialogue, social cohesion, and media literacy.”

The training constitutes an initiative of the KAICIID-supported Interreligious Platform for Dialogue and Cooperation in the Arab World launched in Vienna - Austria, in February 2018, which brings together Christian and Muslim religious leaders in a safe space to coordinate interreligious dialogue initiatives in the Arab region.
