SAVE THE DATE - International Conference on Civic Actors in War and Peace
While the global coronavirus pandemic challenged the way we work and live, the war in Ukraine has brought a new set of challenges that we hoped we will never have to deal with. Yet, we do. In this conference organized by Partners for Democratic Change Slovakia (PDCS), we aim to explore what strategies we as civic actors can utilize to address hate, polarisation and extremism in our online and offline communities both in times of war and peace.
