The students at Buffalo High School in Buffalo, Texas, USA investigated the important concept of Peace in collaboration with Al Hussan International School, Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. Together they created an awareness campaign about the similarities both groups had discovered during their conferences, and how that enabled them to understand that though we all may have different religions, different languages, and different colored skin, we all, however, belong to one human race.
“We were amazed during each video conference with how much we all had in common. It would be amazing to us if, during our generation, the people in this world could realize how alike we all are and how little reason there is to hate.”
This student project was created as part of YouthTalk 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US and the Arab World. It is run by the Global Nomads Group, in partnership with Bridges of Understanding.
