King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID) Heroes of Dialogue

King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID) has launched a call to nominate “Heroes of Dialogue”. Today, more than ever, the stories of “dialogue heroes” among us – individual agents of hope and change who have committed themselves to fostering peaceful coexistence in their communities – need to be heard.

If you know of an inspirational individual who has contributed to fostering peace in his/her community and used dialogue to bridge difference, we would welcome their nomination! The top candidates will be featured in a hardcover publication so that their stories can serve as an inspiration for others to become dialogue advocates in their own communities.
