Restorative Circles for Citizens of Europe is a project that uses the restorative approach to launch a series of talking Circles in 9 cities across five countries in Europe (Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Greece and Italy). The project brings together people that are pro-EU with those that are EU-skeptics to explore these differences in the setting of a restorative circle. Rather than the usual reactionary debate style, the circle uses a talking piece to allow for more in-depth reflections, a pause for thought and genuine listening. The result is a conversation which opens up perspectives through empathic listening, and the dissolving of borders between political ideologies.
The project is funded by Europe for Citizens.
