The philosophy of Xchange Perspectives grounds itself in the law of eternal interconnectedness of our diverse human identities. We trust that knowledge is universal, and thus is meant to be exchanged amongst us all. Through this sharing and communication of trust, Xchange Perspectives foresees a future of unity in diversity, a vital expression of peace.
Our contribution through media is the way we choose to partner with all actors committed to development and peace processes, in our collective aspirations towards equal, just, sustainable and all-inclusive social change.
The processes and goals of our contributions are grounded in fostering commitment and empathy, leading to transcendence, to finally reach for unity in diversity. Therefore we nurture the following values:
• Inclusiveness & participation >>> Unity
• Identity care & equity >>> Diversity
• A search for excellence & creativity >>> Transcendence
• Proactive non-violence & dialogue >>> Empathy
• Sustainability, transparency & accountability >>> Commitment
We envision a world where all voices are equally heard and considered; a world where all people have knowledge, capacities and skills to share their views through media and shape what and how they communicate. A world where all people have the space to fulfil their need for expression, leading to an open exchange and reflection, stepping stones for peace.
Media for Peace
How can the media be used for peace? Through an exhaustive and exciting process that we share with our partners. Drawing insights from different disciplines, we work cooperatively to instil values, strategies and actions which – through media – further the cause of peace in our communities.
