DialoguePerspectives. Discussing Religions and Worldviews is a European programme of the Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Scholarship Fund (ELES), made possible by contributions from Germany’s Federal Foreign Office. DialoguePerspectives develops and implements new forms of worldview and inter-religious dialogue. The programme has been successfully training future decision-makers to be experts in inter-religious/worldview dialogue for the past five years.
Participants enter into a dialogue with one another and with renowned international academics and experts on one of the most important topics of our time: the role of religions and worldviews for the individual and for European society.
With DialoguePerspectives we enter into dialogue with future European leaders and decision-makers of different philosophical and religious orientations and impressions as well as with renowned international academics and experts on one of the most important topics of our time: the role of religions and world views for the individual and for European society.
The programme makes possible something that is all too rare in our society these days: speaking and having discussions across borders, not about each other, but with each other. That can be a hard slog at times, but at the same time the format makes space for follow-up questions and deeper conversations that are only possible through trust on all sides.
