Community Conversations

Convid-19 has proven how fragmented societies are, particularly among the disadvantaged communities. The level of isolation and loneliness has become even clearer in these communities.

Our community conversation aims at creating connections and creating a platform to raise their awareness on diverse issues and challenges that affect their lives including but not limited to climate, crime, cost of living and poverty and raise their voices, ideas, and leadership skills.

To spearhead meaningful discussions and dialogue within communities, we offer community media and solutions journalism to young adults from ethnic minority communities. This enables them to lead stories, news and discussion that represent their communities and seek solutions to their problems. Authentic community conversations promote ownership and create a sense of belonging to every member in that community and reduce isolation and loneliness.

To ensure equal and adequate participation, we first identify issues and topics, locate directly impacted communities and organise their participation. The heart of our community conversation program is structurally community-driven and led initiatives.
