4th Feb. 2015, House of Lords, Committee Room 4
Hosted by the Rt. Hon. Baroness Verma, Under Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change
The evening served as a gathering where “communities can come together to be candid and have an honest conversation,” remarked Baroness Verma in her introduction. Indeed there was an open forum and debate in which individuals of different backgrounds and religions expressed their opinions and perspectives on the topic of inter-religious harmony and free speech.
“If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together”, recommended one of the Ambassadors for Peace (AFP), a head teacher at a London School who took part in the Winter Universal Peace Federation (UPF) – weekend to study Peace Principles at Cleeve House, in Wiltshire, over 16-18th of January.
