Social Media as a Space for Dialogue

More than 120 participants from religious communities, civil society and interreligious organizations across the Middle East met in Amman to develop new strategies for using social media to promote dialogue between different worldviews, cultures and religions. Participants shared lessons about best practices for disseminating messages of pluralism and interreligious coexistence. The meeting produced a manual and an action plan for regional social media capacity-building workshops for religious institutions.
