As 2013 is approaching we would like to wish you a happy New Year!
The passing year brought to us evidence that we and like-minded people all over the world have still a lot of things to do. Today we are more than convinced that the dialogue of civilizations community is developing in a right direction towards forming a more humane world.
But we still cannot allow ourselves to be self-deceived and we do not think that all the conflicts can be instantly resolved and all misunderstandings may disappear at once, but we do hope that the next year will bring more efforts to build a peaceful and just world.
Nevertheless we look forward with confidence and move further guided by the basic dialogue principles: openness, mutual understanding and inclusivity. We hope that you share our inspirations and we are sure that together we can do more.
With best wishes,
World Public Forum “Dialogue of Civilizations”
