Collaboration between the Colunga Foundation, Glocalminds, The Kairos Project, Focus and the Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue, with support from the Norwegian Government.
The 21st century brings new challenges to Chilean society, and appropriate skills are needed to address them properly. Segregation, weakening of institutions and polarization pose a scenario where civil society organizations can make a significant contribution by facilitating dialogue between actors who have lost the ability to meet.
Inequality and poverty constitute a violation of rights, which is manifested in phenomena such as violence, segregation and disaffiliation. Those who work in these contexts, require the ability to reestablish dialogue and encounter in stressed and fractured contexts.
Colunga Foundation, with support from the Government of Norway, and in partnership with the Nansen Center of Norway, Glocalminds, The Kairos Project and Focus; they have prepared the international seminar “The reunion in violent times”, to contribute to the development of the dialogue capacities that civil society requires to respond to the changes and challenges of these times.
