Selmiyah Forum 2014: Meaningful Conversations for Peaceful Actions
Selmiyah (Peaceful) is an independent civic movement, non violent, non partisan. Its members have a strong belief in the importance of peaceful non violent struggle, and the importance of unity. It aims to build upon the gains of the Egyptian revolution, and to spread a culture of peace within the Egyptian society. This can be achieved through the coordination between the different parties through an umbrella comprising individuals and initiatives conscious of their national responsibilities, aiming at promoting the values of peace, love and coexistence.
On the 21st of September 2013, Selmiyah has been relaunched as a network of more than 35 active initiatives, NGOs, companies, and youth groups working to promote culture of peace in Egyptian society with different approaches. Kindly find attached the final version of the list of partners. Now we are 43 partners, and we think of our movement as a support network for its members. All we need -at many situations- is to be able to identify stake holders that are trust worthy, thus enabling efficient mutual coordination & collaboration.

1- Getting to know each other better
2- Learning from each other
3- Brainstorming ideas
