Ali Can is an author, peacebuilder and founder of the Intercultural Peace Association. Convinced that the breeding ground for xenophobia and rightist ideology is partly based on a deep-rooted fear and ignorance of the ‘unknown’, he will actively approach those who are vocally opposed to ‘those’ refugees, ‘those’ Muslims and ‘those’ immigrants during his Connect-Reflect-Act talk by finding creative ways to break down prejudices. He has recently founded a hotline for citizens concerned about the refugee crisis.
