5th International Conference “Civic Actors in Conflict" (More information coming soon)
We aim to explore what tools and methods we as civic actors can use which can help us to build deeper trust among people hence depolarize divided societies in challenging political situations. We will also look into trust in the times of Corona. How can the civil society respond to the new situation and how can it mitigate polarisation?
to meet experts and practitioners to discuss their analytical contributions and stories, to experience interactive workshops, to take part in simulations and other interactive conference formats that enable in depth interactions among participants.
The conference aims together with you to explore and test various techniques and methods of sensitising depolarisation of our societies „Face-to- Face“.
There are multiple roads that one can take on this journey. How to decide which ones to take?
Our intention is to reflect the need for active change of public dialogue in a way that enables our society to see the changing realities in value-based conflicts.
We will also look into trust in the times of Corona. How can the civil society respond to the new situation and how can it mitigate polarisation?

May I also commend you on the hospitality and quality of experience that we had while in Bratislava. The chance to network and share ideas was well organised and I particularly enjoyed the format of the open space session, something I think will be an effective strategy to share in education. I will use the learning from the conference in my teaching from now.Eimear McKeown Head of Art at New-Bridge Integrated College
