The Bertelsmann Stiftung organized the Forum together with the Aladdin Project and in cooperation with UNESCO. 100 young committed people from 24 European countries exchanged views on how to strengthen social cohesion in diverse societies. In keeping with the motto “learn –connect –transfer” they shared ideas, experiences and good practices. They worked together on solutions and discussed with activists, experts and politicians how a peaceful, solidarity-based and democratic living together can be achieved.
