|Syndicate: Fwd: [Salzburg Seminar] Message from Olin Robison|
From: email@example.com To: "Salzburg Seminar Alumni" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Message from Olin Robison Date: Wed, 16 Feb 2000 18:02:01 +0100
To: Alumni of the Salzburg Seminar From: Olin Robison, President The following statement has been adopted by the Salzburg Seminar in response to the current political situation in Austria. This statement has been posted on the Seminar's website at <www.salzburgseminar.org/upcoming.cfm>. Any updates will be posted on the site. Thank you for your ongoing interest in the Seminar and your commitment to its future. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "The Salzburg Seminar is acutely aware that the current political situation in Austria raises troubling questions for a number of the Seminar's constituents and supporters. We believe that our best response, as an independent, international, non-profit institution, is to continue to be a showcase in Austria for what can be accomplished through openness and inclusiveness. An institution committed to these principles cannot survive, however, if those who share them remove themselves from the arena. We very much hope, then, that you will join us in our on-going efforts to demonstrate to the world the value of dialogue, tolerance, diversity, and reconciliation as we conduct our 2000 program. "To those who plan to attend the Seminar in 2000 as Faculty or Fellows, we hope you will participate as a visible symbol that those who embrace the principles of tolerance, diversity, and reconciliation cannot be turned away by those who may oppose them. To our supporters and contributors, we hope you will recognize how very important it is that the Salzburg Seminar continues to bring participants from around the world to Austria, even in the midst of political uncertainty. And to our many friends and well-wishers at this time, we hope you will join with us in our steadfast commitment to the principle that the open, unhampered dialogue that characterizes the Salzburg Seminar experience is fundamental to building a better world."
