We bring people together who might not otherwise meet across disciplines and generations for dialogue.
By creating open platforms in a spirit of inclusiveness and universal responsibility, we use the power of dialogue as a catalyst for progress, connection and insight.
Our hope is to ignite a conversation around topics challenging the human community to develop a rich understanding of human dignity and human capacity.
Everyone has a role to play in making the change we want to see in the world.
Creating events and forums to bring people together in dialogue, including those who might not ordinarily meet.
Engaging with the wider challenges of our time by developing educational resources that strengthen our capacity to find common ground and respect differences.
Facilitating a sense of the oneness of humanity that all can identify with regardless of belief or culture.
In September 2015, Rowan Williams hosted the Inspire Dialogue Foundation’s inaugural event, Dialogue with the Dalai Lama. The Cambridge event brought participants together for two days of open dialogue. Topics ranged across resources, health, technology, the environment, education, conflict resolution and freedom. The overarching theme was Universal Responsibility.
For dialogue to take place, there must be a genuine hearing of the “Other.” This is an immensely difficult task because we find it all too easy to relate to others in a casual way, without concentration on the reality of another person.
