Abp. Ledesma pushes for culture of peace in media

MALAYBALAY CITY – Cagayan de Oro Archbishop Antonio Ledesma has pushed for media to have culture of peace seeking more media participation as stakeholder in the peace process in Mindanao.

Ledesma, chair of the Catholic Bishop Conference of the Philippines Episcopal Commission for Inter-religious Dialogue, has convened the media from the dioceses of Cagayan de Oro, Butuan, Surigao, Tandag, Malaybalay, Iligan, Marawi, Pagadian for a culture of peace workshop on September 3, 2011 in Cagayan de Oro City.

ECID is holding the workshop under its Peace Governance Mindanao Program.
In his invitation to the Bukidnon Press Club, Ledesma cited that they intend to identify and share past, present, or proposed inter-religious dialogue (IRD) or peace building activities and initiatives highlighting media participation and active involvement.

They intend to highlight the gains and best practices of those who have experience in peace-building, the problems encountered, and the lessons learned.

Ledesma also cited that they also intend to increase understanding and appreciation of the media’s important bridging role in inter-religious dialogue and peace building.

Seeking that the media will contribute to the “overall call for peace and reconciliation,” Ledesma said they also intend to map capacity building needs and opportunities to strengthen media participation as peace builders. (Walter I. Balane)
