DialogUE Project: Practicing the Art of Dialogue

Immerse yourself in the sense of dialogue and confront each other in order to be able to live it concretely every day. This is the main objective of the 8 webinars promoted by the project “DialogUE: Diverse Identities ALlied  Open to Generate a United Europe”. A way to deepen and grasp the beauty of this art, open to all. Can Christians, Muslims and members of other religions understand one another? Can we work together with those who, despite having the same creed, live it with avant-garde expressions or on the contrary anchored to traditions? Can those who believe in an eternal God and those who do not believe in life after death communicate? How can we build a united Europe between the countries of East and West so different in history, culture, development and tradition? These are the questions that drive the DialogUE project – Diverse Identities Allied Open to Generate a United Europe, a project born in Europe in particular through the International New Humanity Association,  an expression of the Focolare Movement that, since its inception, has made dialogue a lifestyle, a mission to which it is committed daily at various levels together with many organizations that share the same passion to build more fraternal societies. The CERV Programme of the European Commission approved and financed the project. Its focus is people and values centred and its objective is to explore and develop the often challenging dialogue between different groups over a period of two years, in order to shape a Europe that is ever more an expression of that “unity in multiplicity” which is the reason for its existence. On this basis, and in collaboration with the “Foundation for Sophia”, starting on  18th February 2023, it will be possible to participate in an in-depth study on dialogue through an online course divided into 8 appointments. These webinars are open to  all and can be followed in Italian with translation into English, French and Hungarian. The first four aim to provide a real sense what of dialogue is and will be led by Roberto Catalano, an international expert on dialogue. These will be followed by 4 in-depth studies in specific areas, offered by several voices, expressing just as many ongoing workshops among people and citizens of various European countries. The timetable indicating the various topics to be addressed, is as follows (Italian time):

18/02/2023, 15:00 – 17:00 – The necessity of  identity
