In cooperation with the Iran-based Center for International Studies and Collaboration, Multiversity held a conference in Tehran, Iran, on the topic 'The Spring of Wisdom.' The conference ran from 22-24 May 2012 and was a followup to previous conferences in 2010 and 2011. While the earlier conferences focused on academic imperialism and decolonisation, the 2012 conference was an attempt to redirect the intellectual force of these meetings from exposing the undesirable aspects of education to illustrating and exemplifying the wealth and treasure of local, regional, and indigenous knowledge systems. The focus of the meeting was on presenting knowledge as indicated by time, place, and community, and with an eye toward practical illustrations. Thinkers and activists were invited from within Iran and from India, Malaysia, Turkey, Palestine, and sub-Saharan Africa.

Part Two features Munir Fasheh taking questions from the audience at Alzahrah University in Tehran, Iran. In English with alternating Farsi translation. Part One is available here: vimeo.com/69402873
