Oratorio di San Giovanni Battista dei Fiorentini Sala di rappresentanza Banca di Bologna (Corte de’ Galluzzi, 6)    Bologna

As the world is said to be on the cusp of a fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, do we need a dialogical revolution, or Dialogue 4.0, that is a new era of interreligious dialogue and collaboration to help humankind foster inclusive societies and sustainable development worldwide? In an ever more polarized world, should policymakers see religious actors as partners in building long-term strategies to foster pluralism, social cohesion and sustainable development?
