Call for Participants: “Humanity Reclaimed: Youth Perspectives on Diversity on Inclusion” Conference

September 1st, 2018 3:34 pm

“Humanity Reclaimed: Youth Perspectives on Diversity on Inclusion” conference in Thessaloniki, Greece
29.11-05.12 2018

We often hear people claiming that their faith in humanity is lost for a number of reasons. Sometimes this is attributed to external factors (usually technology and political choices), whilst other times it is connected to collective responses around major humanitarian issues, such as immigration waves from war-zones. Among those who claim that humanity is lost, there is often a sense that societies are backtracking from progress and regressing to older patterns of thinking. Our conference will be an attempt to enhance the dialogue on this issue by answering a number of questions: Why do some people think that humanity is lost? And if so, what do they recommend in order to reclaim it? Is the human condition at the moment all gloom and doom, or are there glimpses of hope that we tend to overlook by focusing on the negatives? And how do diversity and inclusion fit into all of this?

If you would like to be part of this dialogue, join us between 29.11 – 05.12.2018 in Thessaloniki, Greece for the “Humanity Reclaimed: Youth perspectives on diversity and inclusion” Conference.

Young people from all over Europe will be gathering to sing, eat, pray, learn and talk deeply about diversity, inclusion, and practices stemming from these ideals.

During the programme, you will have the opportunity to participate in a series of workshops, lectures and small group discussions. These are aimed at creating mutual respect and enhancing understanding of topics such as the subject of how diversity and inclusion lead to a better future for all of us, whilst at the same time recognizing the challenges they pose to societies.
