2ND EDITION – June 2018
The leading theme in this second edition was “When words are bridges”.
We selected it because it is the 5th point in the Manifesto of Non-Hostile Communication and because it seemed to be the right time to promote thoughts, insights and proposals which oppose ever-increasing messages of isolation, division, exclusion.
During the second edition of the Festival we continued to dialogue on the themes regarding online hostile language.
To reflect on whether our digital relationships have changed after the previous edition, for better or for worse.
To continue together, and with ever increasing conviction, an on-going awareness of different topics.
To find solutions through the Manifesto of Non-Hostile Communication that meet the new needs of people.
It was a day of talks with online experts, journalists, communicators, legal experts, and other professionals.
Different experiences, fields and styles were discussed to address this topic from different perspectives.
Before the panels, a one hour plenary session has been held.
