Breaking News: Belgrade joins Dialogue Cafe Network! 0 Reply

 

dcbelgrade_opening

In the framework of a cooperation agreement established between United Nations Associations of Serbia and the Dialogue Café Association, the opening of two new Dialogue Cafe in Serbia (Belgrade and Subotica) are planned to be open in Serbia further to the one that is already operational in Novi Pazar. Thanks to this amazing partnership, the Dialogue Cafe network will be strengthen as a whole and its serbian leg consolidated. Dialogue Café is based on the radical but simple idea that people have many things in common and given the opportunity, they will explore their common interests, sparking collaborations and stimulating ideas that address the major issues of today. These kinds of conversations and collaborations can lead to new ways of thinking and doing: they can empower individuals and communities, break down prejudice and misconceptions and promote greater understanding and co-operation across cultures.

Dialogue CafĂ© is a low cost, low carbon solution to the challenge of connecting people who want to share and collaborate for common interests in other parts of the world. It also provides a unique experience. The technology we use at Dialogue CafĂ©, TelePresence, links people through life-size high definition video and sound, allowing them to talk and meet in a context that is as ‘real’ as possible despite being located on different sides of the world. As such, Dialogue CafĂ© plays a role as a bridge to the rest of the world: it enables local hosts, and local civil society groups, to share their work, knowledge and ideas and learn from others from around the world.

The Official Opening of Dialogue Cafe Belgrade will take place next 13th December 2016 from 15h to 17h London time. The event will include two parts: firstly, the official opening of DC Belgrade; secondly, a session on “Interethnic and interreligious trust, dialogue and cooperation – the importance of respecting human rights“.

Programme – Official Opening of Dialogue Cafe Belgrade – From 15h to 15h45 London time:

What are the skills needed to manage well differences and conflict and to generate cross-cultural creativity?

Incubation models for social & creative entrepreneurship: Sharing knowledge and testimonials 0 Reply

A vibrant and diverse social enterprise incubation landscape has been rapidly evolving over the last years. Incubators and accelerators have been pioneers in successfully combining support services including mentoring, funding, business development and infrastructure, to support the emergence of innovative social enterprises and start-ups. In this framework, social and creative entrepreneurship has also found a place and the support from different specialised incubators. Variations in the focus of social incubators have also led to emergence of unique operating and financing models of these social enterprise incubators.

Sustainable clothing vs Fast fashion 2 2

Each week we discover something new about the negative impact the fast fashion industry is having in peopleŽs live and our planet, because the abuse of resources, human and naturals. Confronting this challenge, people, aware and committed, decide to engage and be part of a global or local change. Our commitment for a better future may come from different routes, changing our consumption way of life, thinking about the impact of our daily life, or why not, sewing our own clothes.

The DIY (Do It Yourself) movement and attitude is growing faster for some years now. The list of introductory workshops offered, creative sewing magazines sold, and number of interactions on Pinterest focused on DIY tips, are only few, but strong indicators of the power this movement is acquiring globally. Nevertheless, the DIY movement is having greater impact and seems to serve as powerful injection of motivation for creativity. What started as a hobby becomes stronger and more stable with business projection. The number of makers and sustainable aimed fashion projects increased, but it is this trend having a real impact on the fast fashion industry? Which are the other elements having an influence in the development of sustainable fashion initiatives?
