MEPEACE.org Chat 16 May - After-event-discussion - Civil society: Participation for everyone?

Dear Peacemakers!

After each MEPEACE.org Chat Workshop (a new kind of event taking place every second Sunday in MEPEACE.org Chat), we (the MEPEACE Dialogue Team, that is Cigdem Yilmazer, Clara Singer, Jessica de Souza, Johanna Silverthorne and myself) open a dedicated 'after-event discussion', in order to give the workshop participants and other interested members the chance to elaborate on their points raised during the workshop, share new ideas on the respective topic with others, and discuss with others about the topic.

Information about our event which successfully took place on 16 May can be found here:

http://www.mepeace.org/events/mepeace-chat-may-16

 

Please also see the enclosed summary of the event!

 

The leading questions were:

 

 

What can peacemakers do to strengthen civil society at large?

What could make civil society more effective?

How can those currently excluded from global civil society for various reasons (lack of technology, foreign language skills, internet access, education) participate in it?

 

 

During the 90 minutes of live discussion in the MEPEACE.org Chatroom, the 8 participants, together with the moderators, already addressed these questions to a large extent. However, feel free to add anything here. But please stick to the topic

 

Civil society: Participation for everyone?

 

 

The Dialogue Team won't interfere in this discussion - however, take into account that 'normal' moderation (as in every other discussion) applies - so please observe the MEPEACE.org Guidelines.

This discussion will be open for replies and comments until Saturday, 29 May, the day before the next MEPEACE.org Chat, on Sunday, 30 May. Hence, there will therefore only be one 'open' after-event discussion at any one time.

 

We are looking forward to your comments and opinions!
