We aim to create a venue for an inter-school organization platform to have an open dialogue on the diverse views regarding the unity of different faiths towards life victories and how all people can work together for a better and peaceful future. In addition, the event also aims to open the opportunity for the participating Students to work together for other value creating projects in the future.

Speakers representing different faith will be given time to briefly introduce their faith followed by a dialogue between the speakers and the Student Audience that will tackle not the differences of each faith but the similarities on how to deal with daily life struggles, community service and peace.
