This conference, which is jointly organised by the WSCF Europe and RfP European Interfaith Youth Network, is aimed at helping you to develop skills in communication across cultural divides and making you better able to engage with your neighbours of different backgrounds.

In our more and more diverse societies it is now more common then ever to meet and work with people who are different from us, in culture, religion or social worldview. Sometimes it can be difficult to get into contact and dialogue with somebody that differs from us. At other times, we might think we are open to others, but at the same time we may lack certain communication skills for being sensitive in encounters with different cultures or religions. In a broader context, what we are facing now in many European countries, is that the general commitment to a diverse and inclusive society is diminishing, social hostilities are increasing and far right political parties are winning more and more support. This is a serious problem. However, there is something that you can do!

The first step is to realise: communication across cultural divides is a skill that you can learn. Therefore, this conference, which is jointly organised by the WSCF Europe and Religions for Peace, European Interfaith Youth Network, is aimed at helping you to develop such skills and making you better able to engage with your neighbours of different backgrounds. It will bring together young people of different religious traditions from all over Europe. Together we will have a great time of community and exchange. Together with experienced resource persons we will learn new ways of interacting, and engaging in dialogue and approaching/solving intercultural conflicts.

So join us for this amazing event!
