The book that I co-authored with twelve civil and political society leaders across the MENA region explains our vision of change after the Arab spring. The book collects personal stories from people who lived the tumults and led different types of activism in their respective contexts. My chapter is entitled: Educating People: The Only Panacea. It is my belief that total and sustainable change can only start in social forces such as schools and it is in the school that most of the problems of today start and end: xenophobia and prejudiced thoughts and perspectives included. In this sense, education becomes either a panacea or a poison. As we are all Intercultural Leaders, I invite my colleagues to consider building intercultural ties in early schooling settings.
