During the Civil Society Days 2018 the European Volunteer Centre and EFIL held a workshop on "Identities and Polarisation". The session took the form of a “World Cafe” interactive discussion and included an overview of the current situation related to the development of identities and tendency to polarisation in the current digital world. The experts and participants contributed with their perspectives and examples of practices on how to use digital tools for bringing people together and counteract “othering”, hate speech and polarisation. The overall objective was to consider the contribution that digital technology makes to how citizens view their own and other’s cultural identities and what is and can be civil society’s response. Here you can find their slides.
