Arranging hybrid and transnational dialogues

This toolkit has been developed together with DD Foundation and Timeout-Foundation. The toolkit has been created in preparation for the Hybrid European Democracy Festival to develop pan-European discussion. This toolkit allows anyone to learn from the festival experience and organise transnational discussions themselves.

The toolkit includes the following sections:

  • Transnational dialogues – what and why?
  • Topics for transnational dialogues
  • Language awareness in transnational dialogues
  • Concepts for transnational discussion: physical, digital, hyperlocal
  • Hyperlocal dialogue
  • Inviting participants 
  • Technical setting of hyperlocal dialogue
  • Facilitating a hyperlocal dialogue

When arranging transnational dialogues there are a few aspects that are good to keep in mind. They relate to the purpose of arranging transnational dialogues, choosing a topic that is relevant for many international settings and locations, and taking into consideration several different language backgrounds. We warmly recommend that you get to know the general Timeout toolkit for more advice and tools on how to arrange and facilitate a constructive and equal dialogue. 

To learn more about how to use the toolkit and get an experience of a digital transnational dialogue, we await anyone to take part in our webinar on 5th February 14.00-16.00 (Eastern European Time/Helsinki time) on Zoom.

Register to the webinar by 31st January here.
