#TalkingInclusion, a space to discuss migration, inclusion and media narratives

 

With migration and refugee flows taking center stage in world affairs, spaces to discuss these processes and their consequences with a focus on humans and integration are more and more needed. That’s why, after participating in the 6 Degrees citizen forum last September, we teamed up with them to keep the conversation going – this time, online.

#TalkingInclusion is a space to exchange ideas and reflect on about issues related to migration, inclusion, diversity, world affairs and media narratives, through online talks that are lived streamed and published on Youtube. We’ve held four talks with panelists from different fields – journalists, activists, photographers, filmmakers, coders -, from different origins and residing in different countries, from Argentina to England.

So far, we’ve discussed these topics:
