Planning and Designing When Fundamental Beliefs Are At Odds

May 6, 2015

Please join us for a discussion led by Ora Gladstone, Coordinator of the Addir Fellows Program at MIT, and Whitney Barth, of the Pluralism Project at Harvard. We will explore how radically different beliefs can be taken into account when public decisions need to made about the use of public space. Ms. Gladstone will facilitate a discussion on interfaith dialogue, particularly how to appreciate different beliefs. Ms. Barth will lead a discussion of a case study of public controversy entitled A Call to Prayer. Professor Larry Susskind will serve as moderator for the event. This discussion is organized in conjunction with the Malaysia Sustainable Cities Program (MSCP) and the exhibition currently in the Wolk Gallery: Female Faces in Sustainable Places: Malaysian Women Promoting Sustainable Development.
