Why the world needs compassion now

Why the world needs compassion now

Streamed live on Jul 1, 2014

Join UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova and Karen Armstrong FRSL, internationally renowned scholar on comparative religions, in conversation to discuss religion and conflict in the world today. In a year marking the centenary of the First World War, when arguably the world increasingly seems to resemble the world of 1914, how do we contend with a global environment that is increasingly multipolar, unpredictable and ravaged by conflicts driven by ethnic and religious divides?

Karen Armstrong will provide an exposition on her call for compassion in an attempt to change the conflict paradigm, and bring compassion to the forefront of the world's attention.

In partnership with the Maimonides Interfaith Foundation.
