Join us for an evening that celebrates the circulation of ideas and knowledge.

The theme this year is:
👉 (Re)building Together : Inter-religious Dialogue and Social Cohesion. Perspectives from Nigeria.

How can we build together more resilient, fair and cohesive societies? In a world where religiosity and transcendence play an important role, what can the contributions of religious leaders and organizations be?

As well as a deeply diverse and complex country, Nigeria is a laboratory where academics, civil society leaders and citizens invent new ways of being and living together.

A screening and a roundtable will aim at collectively discussing these initiatives and shedding light on the current perspectives of social cohesion in Nigeria.

📅 Thursday 27th January
📍 Alliance française de Lagos / Mike Adenuga Centre
⏰ 7PM Prompt

Retrouvez-nous pour une soirée qui célèbre la circulation des idées et des savoirs.

Cette année, nous réfléchirons au thème:
👉 (Re)construire ensemble : dialogue interreligieux et cohésion sociale. Perspectives du Nigéria.

Comment pouvons-nous construire ensemble des sociétés plus résilientes, plus justes et plus cohésives ? Dans un monde où la religiosité et la transcendance jouent un rôle important, quelles peuvent être les contributions des chefs religieux et des organisations ?

En plus d’être un pays profondément diversifié et complexe, le Nigeria est un laboratoire où les universitaires, les dirigeants de la société civile et les citoyens inventent de nouvelles façons d’être et de vivre ensemble.

La diffusion d'un film et une table ronde serviront à discuter collectivement de ces initiatives et à mettre en lumière les perspectives actuelles de cohésion sociale au Nigeria.

📅 Jeudi 27 janvier
