DIALOGUE

DEBATE IS GOOD, DIALOGUE IS BETTER

The EUSG Dialogue

Democracy should not be reduced to political debate. Especially in a two-party system or Yes/No questions debate tends to lock in, builds a frontline and produces winners and losers. In contrast dialogue is all about sharing, listening, understanding and learning, and it is about co-creation enrichen all parties involved.

Dialogue in society, in politics, in the economy and the civil society and amongst those realms, is what the EUSG wants to foster, to host and to facilitate. Dialogue and understanding is the prerequisite for social innovation and a better future.

THE INTERDISCIPLINARY LOUNGE OPENS ITS DOORS NOT ONLY IN BERLIN

The Interdisciplinary Lounge builds on the salon tradition of the 19th century when gentry and the growing middle class of the bourgeoisie started to mix and mingle promoting liberal humanistic ideals and progressive democratic values. For more than 10 year the Interdisciplinary Lounge ventures the interspaces between the various fractions and silos in society.

Awarded “Landmark in the Land of Ideas” in 2009 for its lounge series in Berlin the Interdisciplinary Lounge opens its doors now wherever interested partners like to host interdisciplinary dialogue.
For a better tomorrow

Good solutions are grounded in dialogue or they are not good solutions.

Register for dialogue

Whatever draws you to the EUSG is a good reason to register for the various dialogue options the EUSG provides.

DIALOGUE EN ROUTE IS MORE THAN TALK

As recent as 2015 the EUSG started the Dialogue en Route programme. Dialogue en Route is more than inviting faculty of the EUSG research hubs to speak, it is genuine dialogue. If you want to be understood seek to understand. And what starts as mutual understanding often results in the co-creation of new ideas opening up new possibilities.

THE EUSG DIALOGUE FORUM

Beyond faculty session, advisory board meetings or alumni network gatherings the EUSG itself wants to be a role model for interdisciplinary dialogue. The EUSG Dialogue Forum to provides a platform for internal and external stakeholder dialogue, for reflection, learning and ever bolder ambitions.
