On 3rd September 2007, the Mayor of St Jean Cap Ferrat in France, M. Rene Vestri, with local community and faith leaders, and the Director of the Coexist Foundation, James Kidner, inaugurated a new drinking fountain in a park overlooking the Mediterranean, “in the name of peaceful coexistence between faiths”. Among those who attended the celebration were Bono, Cherie Blair and Dame Vivien Duffield, along with a host of local schoolchildren and well-wishers.

It is hoped that this fountain, with its simple, timeless message, will be the first of many in parks and public places around the world. Click here for text of speech.
