Millennium Fellowship Project
The root cause of conflict is inequality. Discrimination due to ethnicity, beliefs, religion, gender, sexual orientation, caste, creed etc. The seeds of prejudice are embedded deeply into the soils of our mind and to address this at a much deeper level, we need to be able to C.O.E.X.I.S.T. and celebrate our differences.
C.O.E.X.I.S.T is a project promoting awareness of the inequalities faced by individuals through developing a multi-dimensional appreciation of the oneness of humanity. It creates a platform for open dialogue to address all adversities and barriers including health, education, sexuality, religion, beliefs and human rights to having an equal opportunity to life.
