Complementary to the regular seminar programme, each year one European Leadership Workshop takes place in a different European metropole with a special meaning for interfaith dialogue. The European Leadership Workshop is open to participants and alumni*ae of DialoguePerspectives who either have previous experience in interfaith dialogue, are engaged in their congregations, communities, or universities, or who have founded initiatives in the field. These workshops promote more intensive networking among the participants as well as exchange and networking with European and international actors. An intensive methods training serves to strengthen the participants in their future roles as European multipliers.
˝The programme makes possible something that is all too rare in our society these days: speaking and having discussions across borders, not about each other, but with each other. That can be a hard slog at times, but at the same time the format makes space for follow-up questions and deeper conversations that are only possible through trust on all sides.
