Together We Speak

SPEAK! is a global campaign, developed and coordinated by CIVICUS, which seeks to address the issue of increasing social and political polarization. In 2018, the campaign culminated in a weekend of action from 16-18 November, with almost 200 events in over 45 countries bringing together people and communities across lines of division to help build connection and understanding.

As part of the 2018 campaign, SPEAK! and Living Room Conversations worked to create a unique conversation guide, which was used by organizations from over 10 countries including Lebanon, Zambia and Colombia.

Nederland Luistert [the Netherlands is listening] arose from a need to give practical meaning to the concept of "listening," and to combat the polarization and alienation of people in relation to different opinions with curiosity, because what connects us strengthens us, and what divides us enriches us, as the Netherlands and as human beings. We will use Living Room Conversations materials in events throughout the year.
