From untied to united


This activity poses questions for discussion and debate: How can the diverse elements of society join together in a spirit of unity? Is it possible to have unity in diversity and a harmonious society, or is this too idealistic? What is unity? Is it our job to create unity? Is it important for building community? Is it a prerequisite for peace? How can we achieve it?

Based on a talk given at the Cambridge University Festival of Ideas.
