PAX Power to the People x HIA TALKS | Conflict as opportunity
During the annual Peace Week (September 18-26) the second edition of Pax Power to the People took place. Humanity in Action The Netherlands organized together with PAX the event Conflict as opportunity. The Key note was provided by Senior Fellow Ufuk Kâhya. He shared in a personal story, his own experiences in a polarized society, and revealed how he remains hopeful despite it. How can we learn to talk (again) to people who are far removed from us? And do these social and personal conflicts also contain an opportunity?
