In recent years, we have been following the public debate with increasing concern. Not because it's hard and direct; It has to be. Direct and open debate can highlight differences thereby giving us insight into ourselves and each other. No, what worries us is distrust. The worship of enemy images.
Echo chambers and declining willingness to listen to each other. Denmark is a society in which trust in institutions and citizens across social and political divisions has traditionally been high. Therefore, we have had a good framework for dealing with our disagreements and differences. Despite this, many feel insecure. But we can live together, even if we are different. This is what dialogue coffee is all about. The goal is not that everyone should agree with each other But that we have to develop and sharpen our capacity to accommodate our disagreements and diversity.
That is why we now coming together to create Denmark's first Centre for Dialogue Coffee. You can join us. We need you.
