The purpose of World Hello Day is to promote peace all over the world, and bridge barriers between every nationality! The day began in 1973 in response to the conflict between Israel and Egypt and since then over 180 countries have
taken part in the event. We can only ever achieve a peaceful world if we join together. Forming bonds with new people is the best way to do it! The key is communication and we should try to create peace through talking - not through being violent to one another!
In Lincoln we use the day to promote tolerance and understanding and encourage people to get to know each other to create a better place to live for everyone...starting by saying hello.
Communication Across Cultures Conference, organised by Dr Valeria Carroll in collaboration with BSc Health and Social Care and MSc Social Work students. It was funded by University of Lincoln, School of Health and Social Care.
Around 350 people took part in the conference, which is fantastic. We had speakers to discuss topics such as how young people adapt to a new country and how Brexit has effected international migrants living in the UK. Workshops were held in the afternoon on other topics related to communication. The Mayor also made a great speech praising the success and motivation to the students who had migrated from other parts of the world.”
