Democracy is more than a word, workshop
As part of Refugee Week Greece, exploration workshops around the theme of “healing” we are inviting you to this 2-hour interactive online workshop.
Participants will reflect and explore practical ways of understanding the difference between accepting or tolerating differences and valuing cultural diversity.
Cultural diversity and variability are an asset for democratic societies and cultural affiliations, pluralism of perspectives, views and practices ought to be positively regarded, appreciated, and cherished.
Those who perceive that their experiences, values, and attitudes are not simply tolerated, but rather valued, gain a sense of integration and equality.
This feeling is an important step towards healing from experienced injuries and devaluations, from insecurities and fear.
A democracy at the center of which is the appreciation of differences can greatly contribute in such healing processes.
An interactive workshop on “Democracy is more than a word”: Healing through the values of democracy.
