Since 2015, Connecting Actions has convened a number of organisations working for Interfaith, Interconvictional and Interidentity Dialogue. In 2018, a Coalition was created to reinforce this field in Europe and increase our impact: the European Institute For Dialogue.

What we do

We provide in depth training, building skills that enable facilitators to navigate the most difficult interpersonal and group dynamics.


We accompany bridge-building initiatives and inter group collaboration efforts with sound advice to ensure deep learning and restored relationships.


We thrive to connect individuals and organisations that share a common mission around bridge building and social cohesion in Europe and beyond.


Connecting Actions is an international initiative to reinforce and advance citizen, interconvictionnal, and inter identity dialogue initiatives and programmes.

Connecting Actions is an international initiative to strengthen the field of citizen, intercultural, interconvictionnal and inter identity dialogue. Since its creation, it has convened 6 symposiums gathering civil society leaders and experts to share best practices and reinforce this field for more impact. We help build bridges between the bridge builders.

The initiative was originally ideated during the 2015 Muslim Jewish Conference with its first action consisting in mobilizing young Muslim and Jewish alumni around Europe to help assist refugees by providing food and clothing for them upon their arrival in Europe.

In the backdrop of mounting religious, ethnic and political tensions in Europe, Connecting Actions seeks to address pressing questions around inter identity tensions and professionalize a field that has the potential of becoming a key tool of governance and an essential aspect of diversity and democracy.

Connecting Actions, is a non profit organisation registered in France. Since 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.
