Session on Integration of Minorities, 27 April 2’15


April was an important month for Dialogue Cafe Network because DC Novi Pazar (Serbia) and DC Évora (Portugal) joined us and strengthened our global dimension.

Dialogue Cafe has now more than 2000 friends on facebook, a very important achievement for our network. We are very grateful for this support.

The cycle of sessions on changing journalism, changing societies was lauched and we talked about journalism and censorship nowadays (24 April), an important issue if we take into account the findings of the last world press freedom index published by Reporters Without Borders.

Dialogue Cafe also shared initiatives on how to better integrate minorities, in particular the roma community and improve community cohesion (27 April), a common challenge our societies face around the world.

Moreover, in partnersip with the Association Sorrir (Portugal) we smiled and talked about happiness to celebrate the International Day of Smile (28 April). A follow-up training will be developed during the second semester in order to organise a DC Smile Dance.

The third World Happiness Report will be released on April 23rd, 2015. In anticipation of the release, the Dialogue Cafe Lisbon is proposing a unique session combining reflection and some practical activities that will increase your feeling of happiness!

One of our biggest advances in life has been in figuring out what causes happiness — and what doesn’t. For example, everyone wants to be happy. By increasing your level of happiness within yourself, you can affect your relationships in a more positive way.


Dialogue and Be Happy!

Dialogue and Be Happy!

But have you ever noticed how some people have few material possessions, yet seem very happy, while others have an abundance of material wealth, yet seem very unhappy? How can some people remain strong through many crises, while others fall apart over nothing? If money and possessions don’t determine happiness, what does?

With this purpose, the Dialogue Cafe of Lisbon and Rio de Janeiro will organise a session on Tuesday 28 April from 14h00 to 15h00 (London time) aimed at reflecting upon this topical issue and…gaining some practical insights about what to do live…happier life!!!

As you will see at the end…it might happen that all DCs will join on a GLOBAL SMILE DANCE organised by Asociação Sorrir. 

Concept note & Final Programme

Smile, Join us and Be Happy!
