Learning to live in a multicultural world (in Switzerland)

Tuesday, 26 July (4.45pm) – Sunday, 31 July (noon)
Learning to live in a multicultural world
Diaspora and peacemaking in Europe

Have a look at the programme – I spent a few days at Caux last year and loved it.  Loads of people (including young interns) from all around Europe in a huge palace hotel just above Montreux on Lake Geneva.

Lectures, networking, panels, discussion groups, training – along with leisurely meals on the sunny terrace, challenging speakers and a spot of washing up duty to keep the costs down (92 Swiss francs per person per night, 55 for students).

I’m extra happy to be going with my 22 year old daughter this year – I can’t think of a better companion.

With the recent election result from Finland and the face-covering ban in France, I’m keen to meet other Europeans and look at migration, identity, religion and European history in all its complexity.

Anyone else coming?
