Dialogue is one of the central elements of IZ’s work. Dialogue and exchange with partners, funding bodies and project participants at eye level is essential to us. We listen to find out what is needed and create new projects together.
In order to find suitable solutions for social challenges, new forms of cooperation will become increasingly important. Working within national and international networks, learning from each other as well as sharing insights is facilitated by the rapid technological development. More and more new forms of mobility of people as well as new forms of knowledge transfer arise.
Our work is oriented towards the strengthening of civil society by inviting, empowering and encouraging various actors to participate. This empowerment to partake in the political decision-making process, in local, regional and international processes, strengthens our society by improving living together and ensuring greater justice.
We create spaces for encounters, bring people together in dialogue and thus enable successful cooperation and networking.
