The YADA Foundation will hold the Living Together: “Possible Together” Workshop on 25 September in the scope of the “Enhancing Multiculturalism Approach of Civil Society Organisations in Turkey and EU”.
The YADA Foundation is working to increase dialogue between different actors of civil society and to increase the impact capacity of civil society. In all their events, they bring together many institutions that differ in their fields of activity, their background and motivation, and pursue opportunities for discussion and collaboration. One of their most important areas of focus is to increase dialogue and cooperation between civil society organisations working directly and which represent different identity and cultural groups and also with those who work together with those representing these groups and, thus, increase the impact of these organisations.
In light of this motivation; they have taken a step towards “living together, possible together” in the scope of the “Enhancing Multiculturalism Approach of Civil Society Organizations in Turkey and EU” Project, implemented under the Fifth Phase of the Civil Society Dialogue Programme funded by the EU, to conduct a series of activities which will focus on the collective living experiences of different identity and culture groups.
They invite you to join this Project funded quest workshop where there will be the opportunity to discuss opportunities for and barrier to living together and common areas of action. Interests for participation must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on 20 September 2019.
