Overview 

In our increasingly diverse societies it is now more common than 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.

Students from all over Europe came to Wroclaw, Poland to learn about how best to communicate with others and to equip themselves with the knowledge to engage in others in intercultural dialogue.  It was a week full of lectures, workshops, role-plays and discussions. People from different faiths to help one another and about how in their differences they could be strong. The conference was a stronghold for the message we wish to spread from the World Student Christian Federation (WSCF) General Assembly “We are many, we are one. Sent to build Gods peace”.
