Supported with a European Commission grant ‘Europe for Citizens’ CFOR is continuing our Europe Matters programme together with partner organisations CFOR UK, ANNWIN Slovakia, Udruga Mi Croatia, IPP Centre for Dialogue Poland and Diversity Matters UK.

‘The focus of Europe Matters is its unusual quality of facilitated dialogue – a deeper dialogue that leads to transformation of attitudes and new initiatives and collaborations’

‘A new kind of think tank, profoundly interactive and with a training component so you can continue facilitating the dialogue when you
go home’

Themes will arise from our diverse group. Facilitated processes in the large group; small groups; panels and roundtables; fish-bowls on specific problems; and networking sessions.
Europe matters may include:
  • attitudes between east-west
  • changing identities in Europe – national, ethnic, multicultural and European identities
  • migration and asylum
  • discrimination based on race, religion, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, mental health and more
  • accountability and how to move from our history of colonialism, memories of war and tyranny to a creative and thriving future
  • global issues including the environment
  • violence prevention
  • the role of media in building multicultural societies
