“It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.”

Those of us who make-up INSPIRE know that peace-making isn’t easy. Peace between neighbours, amongst friends and families, across communities and faiths is never maintained by chance! It only flourishes when we are willing to let go of our fear, dedicate ourselves to deliberately finding common ground and seek to understand one another, so when troubles arise, we pursue dialogue and reconciliation. As each of us knows, unless we proactively seek to engage and listen to those whose faiths, cultures and perspectives differ from ours, we quickly find ourselves consumed by suspicion and division.

That’s why we are launching INSPIRE; a call to action to create a movement of change agents; young people who not only learn from the past but choose to courageously engage with the present so that the future can be different.
