Bridge divides and pool different voices and points of view to create our shared sense of possibility for the future.
The events since summer in Hong Kong have highlighted many aspects that divide our society and cause friction and conflict.
All facets of the community are encouraged to bring forth ideas to take forward together.
• Share experience on engagements to resolve differences and conflicts
• Talk about and listen to ideas on ways forward in Hong Kong
• Explore and create together how to embark on ways forward
Design a dialogue process and experiences and share lessons learned from conflict situations.
The project is open to the public to bring together a broad range of business people, academics, professionals such as social and health workers and lawyers as well as members of civil society organizations. Special efforts are made to include youth and ethnic minorities.
The dialogue project is a response to the ongoing mass protests, social upheaval and violent outbreaks in Hong Kong. Generate dialogues to help (a) identify concerns across divides among key stakeholders and across society more broadly, (b) bring about conciliation between individuals or groups in conflict, and (c) tackle the causes and drivers of conflicts and shape constructive change in institutions, discourses and relationships.
The project is the initiative of The Forward Alliance, a group of independent Hong Kong individuals from different walks of life and of different beliefs but bound together by a common desire and commitment to contribute towards constructive change.
