TABU – Towards A Better Understanding - is a Rotary Club of Highland Park / Homewood  exchange project with the Rotary Club of Belfast in Northern Ireland. It aims to create a better mutual understanding between different communities by studying Conflict Resolution. This includes finding ways to break down barriers among people, particularly young people, and learning how to reconcile differences. Six Northern Ireland students from different religions, schools and backgrounds are carefully selected to go on this exchange every other year while, in between, six Highland Park students visit Belfast. They are accompanied by Rotarians.  The project had its first study visit in 1992 and one has taken place every year since. 

The Belfast team arrived at O'Hare today, and will be here through Friday April 6th.  They'll be kept busy with tours, discussions, and sightseeing.  Welcome!
