Ms. Meera Wijayarathne
BA (Special Sociology- University of Colombo) .,MA ICD and Futwagen University-Germany )(reading)
Meera is the Head of WPDO-World Peace and Diplomacy Org in the European Union and the Head of Cultural Diplomacy Hub. She has participated in several conferences and symposia in Cultural Diplomacy. The interactions with World leaders, Diplomats and Academia has sharpened her skills given greater impetus to start a new dialogue about world peace. The lack of mutual understanding between ethnic groups, religions and different cultures has led to world conflicts. Her personal belief is that , there should be a strong voice, a strong mediator to address these world conflicts. And for that using the concept of cultural diplomacy as a soft power could be a very good option.
As she says: My dream is to create a Cultural Diplomacy Hub. This hub will create a new dialogue for world peace. Together with the United Nations, European Union, Asia and African Union , a huge change can be done. The Cultural Diplomacy Hub will address the values of accepting and respecting different cultures and religions. This Hub will be a bridge to connect people all around the world through Music, Art, Festivals, Events and also by organizing intellectual discussions.
