Speak Up: Social Media and Communications Training for Interreligious Dialogue Practitioners (Pilot Curriculum)
Social media platforms provide a way for everyone to have a voice. Dialogue practitioners have the means to correct stereotypes, counteract hate speech and quell incitement with messages of peace and reconciliation. The KAICIID Social Media and Communications Training gives interreligious dialogue practitioners the tools to tell their stories, create their own channels of information and engage the mainstream press. The curriculum in this pilot form was tested during KAICIID’s Dialogue Days in November. Feedback received will be used to improve the curriculum for release in 2015.
