VIDEO OF THE WEEK
Advice from El-Hibri Peace Education Prize winner

In this video, the Common Ground News Service (CGNews) sat down with this year’s El-Hibri Peace Education Prize recipient Dr Betty Reardon and her friend Cora Weiss, President of the Hague Appeal for Peace, to ask what the average person can do, and seek their advice for the next generation of peacebuilders.  
 
 
 
 
"CGNews is the most successful service I know of when it comes to placing timely, important and thought-provoking opinion-pieces that illuminate intra-Muslim and so-called 'Muslim-Western' debates in important print media outlets. The ability to do so consistently and over as broad an array of media outlets across geographical, linguistic, and ideological editorial barriers is what makes CGNews stand out. Keep the articles coming."

- Shamil Idriss, Former Acting Director of the Secretariat for the UN Alliance of Civilizations
