From an interactive painting session to mission to plant one million trees, the exhibition venue of World Tolerance Summit was rich with diverse topics on tolerance.

Several government departments joined the exhibition, among which Department of Antiquities and Museums displayed artefacts from 16th century, some of them are for the first time being shown to the public. A grave stone of a Jewish person named David with an elegy note, two ceramic bowls, one from China and another from Holland were featured at the stall.


Matyam Saeed Lehlaili, collection specialist at the Ras AL Khaimah Department of Antiques and Museums, said, “We are proud how tolerance part of life even before the formation of the UAE. The two ceramic items were specially designed for the UAE, and it shows the values of coexistence and acceptance of others.”
Trees to build culture of tolerance 


Jean Paul Wabotai, an art teacher with a mission to plant million trees for tolerance, was one of the attractions of the exhibition. His mission, under the patronage of France President Emmanuel Macron, has won the accolades from several global leaders, and he wishes to plan 1 million trees in 2020.


He said, “Why trees and tolerance? Let me explain. I am an art teacher who is in constant touch with children. I can be a great influence on them. When they plant trees with a conscience, they forget their race, skin colour, and they forget all their differences. Only the tree remains there. I want to show them when something is decided with dedication, they can make it happen.”
