This conference aims at creating spaces and opportunities for societal groups to become VISIBLE, be HEARD, and PARTICIPATE in a democratic society.
In these difficult times, with international travel restricted and many international exchange programmes and projects postponed or canceled, we would like to invite you to play an active role in our (virtual) international “creating spaces…” event.
The event offers students, teachers, practitioners and other interested persons an opportunity for intercultural learning in the fields of social work, social management, education, and health sciences, even when travel is restricted.
You are invited to assist in designing the event with your contributions.
Different and creative approaches and formats such as lectures, talks, film presentations or interactive formats are more than welcome. Since there will be a diversity of languages, we have agreed that English will be the conference language. Nonetheless, contributions in other languages are also welcome.
If you are interested in contributing something to the event, please fill out the linked form no later than March 15th 2021 and send it to:
We will be in touch with you to discuss further possibilities.
Registration for participants opens March 15th 2021 and closes May 1st 2021. There will be no registration fee.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Let's create spaces in inclusive societies.
