ABOUT CONNECTING ACTIONS
Connecting Actions is an international initiative to convene citizen, intercultural, interfaith and intercommunal dialogue organisations and experts to share best practices and reinforce this essential field for a better coexistence.
The initiative received its name based on a global network that its initiator, the Muslim Jewish Conference, created in response to the refugee crisis in 2015. The group mobilized a few hundred young Muslims and Jews around Europe to help assist the refugees by providing food and clothing for them upon their arrival in Germany, Austria, and Hungary. From this initiative, the scope of Connecting Actions expanded to help build bridges between the bridge builders.
The first symposiums, hosted by The Muslim Jewish Conference (MJC) in collaboration with Coexister, Three Faith Forum, Faith Matters, and the European Union of Jewish Students, served to bring citizen, intercultural, and interreligious dialogue groups from around Europe to share their experience. They also paved the way for building the Coalition that was created in June 2018.
Connecting Actions, now an independant non profit organisation registered in France, in the backdrop of mounting religious, ethnic and political tensions in Europe, will address pressing questions around the concept of active coexistence, methods and objectives of dialogue, challenges, combating radicalism, resources, social messages and media coverage through intense rounds of discussions.
Since June 2018, Connecting Actions is leading the newly formed European Institute For Dialogue, gathering a dozen European NGOs working in this field, to reinforce our action and multiply our impact.
