Online consultation "Public voices. Searching for solutions to tackle marginalisation" on May 30

Join our online consultation about how COVID-19 and the war have impacted our daily interactions within society. We need YOUR suggestions on how to stop the ongoing division and how to help the healing within the society.

This discussion is not just about the analysis—it is about action! Your insights and ideas will shape the direction of our recommendations to policymakers in the Baltic states and the EU!

Based on the research, focus groups, and international workshops conducted in three Baltic states:
• Every third individual in Lithuania and every fourth in Estonia and Latvia felt underestimated, ridiculed, or attacked for their expressed opinions.
• These tendencies were particularly prevalent among the young population surveyed (aged 18-29 years old).
• The most polarizing topics include the war in Ukraine, attitudes towards Russia, COVID-19, and LGBTQ+ issues.

Let's brainstorm, strategize, and make a difference together! 

  • Date: May 30, 2024, 15:00-16:00
  • Registration until May 29 HERE 
  • Address: online, link provided upon registration
