NOW Promising Practices I

Each community is different. But the challenges of living together are often similar in different local contexts. The series NOW Promising Practices showcases living examples of how to strengthen inclusive social cohesion in diverse communities. We understand practices as methods or ways of action which are adaptable to other local contexts. It is not about describing a project but about explaining how municipalities or local civil society actors tackle societal challenges.

Workshop Phase I: From Knowledge to Action

During the conference, we will gather different insights on how we can overcome division in our communities. But how can we transform this expertise into action? The workshops will focus on how we can act to actually change something on the local level. This format serves as a laboratory to deepen the understanding of our conference topics and allow participants to experience the themes first hand.
