2019 KAICIID International Fellows First Training
The 2019 International Fellows completed their first training at KAICIID headquarters and have returned home with new impressions, inspiration and friends who support them in promoting dialogue in communities around the world.
During their time at KAICIID, the diverse group of religious leaders and scholars learned to enhance and improve their interreligious work, held interreligious dialogue amongst themselves, shared their experiences, and discussed how dialogue can promote peace in their own contexts.
Members of this cohort, who spent 20 to 27 January in a snowy Vienna, Austria, come from Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Taoist, and Yazidi traditions and represent 15 countries. Many of the Fellows are dialogue practitioners, but for some, this was their first experience to meet and befriend people of different religions traditions.
