Annual Pluralism Lecture 2019
The 2019 Annual Pluralism Lecture was held on 11 June 2019 at the Ismaili Centre, Lisbon, where Amina J. Mohammed spoke about the connections between pluralism and sustainable development.
On 16 May 2017, His Highness the Aga Khan and His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada officially opened the Centre’s new permanent headquarters at 330 Sussex Drive in Ottawa.
As defined by the Global Centre for Pluralism, pluralism is an ethic of respect for diversity. Diversity in society is a fact, but how societies respond to diversity is a choice. Pluralism results from the daily decisions taken by a community to actively engage across differences and embrace difference as a strength. Join this esteemed group of panelists as they explore, through lived experiences and discussion:
- How pluralism helps us engage with diversity
- How the arts help us transform academic perceptions of pluralism into action
- How we can practically engage in pluralism as individuals
- The program will reinforce unity through a sense of belonging, especially during this time of isolation.
