Three FWC associates travelled to Pisa, Italy from September 15 - 17, 2009 to join other concerned EU citizens and migrants who live in Europe to explore original and innovative methodology such as Structured Dialogue Design, with the potential to encourage citizens’ participation and to stimulate dialogue between European citizens and the institutions of the European Union on the importance of intercultural dialogue in the context of an increasingly multicultural European Union. The participants focused on specific activities they could conduct themselves to reach the following objectives:
* The active interaction and discussion among citizens on the importance of intercultural dialogue at national and European level;
* The collection of citizens’ opinion on a key challenge for the future such as the intercultural dialogue in a multicultural Europe;
* The development of civic competences, to formulate views and opinions on the European integration process in the form of recommendations for policy makers at European level;
* Bringing the institutions of the EU closer to the European citizens.
