What does Justice Look Like?
Two Caux Scholar Program 2018 Alumni, Paula Mariane (Brazil) and Osama Alrantisi (Palestine) take us on a meditative journey reflecting on their experiences in the Switzerland program. The videos demonstrate how processes towards inclusive peace take shape through deep connections made with leaders from 19 countries across the world. These bonds created on the mountaintop are soulfully sustained once participants return home by working together to provide solidarity, fellowship and trustbuilding solutions to meet uniquely local challenges.
