With the theme "Interfaith Peace Community", the fifth instalment of a youth and peace-building workshop is set to recommence from August 28 to September 2.
The event is a collaborative effort between the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. The primary aim of the workshop is to inspire young individuals to delve deeper into the study of the history of Khmer Rouge's Democratic Kampuchea regime and its notorious security prison S-21.
A key aspect of the workshop is to grasp the significant role religion plays in enlightening individuals, encouraging mutual respect and nurturing a spirit of tolerance.
Representatives from the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum express their aspiration that participants will feel motivated by the workshop to play a proactive role in preventing the repetition of past atrocities in Cambodia.
The workshop is structured to provide participants with an extensive understanding of history. They will also receive a guided tour of the Khmer Rouge historical site, learn about conflict resolution methods and explore the role of youth in peace-making.
The workshop also paves the way for creating meaningful relationships and offers insights into the intricacies of interfaith interactions.
Participants may also be privy to internship opportunities with the Tuol Sleng museum and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. To top it all off, certificates of completion will be awarded at the end of the workshop.
This invaluable experience is open to students in grades 11 and 12, as well as first- and second-year university students.
The deadline for applications is set for August 5.
