Discussion “Immunity to disunity. Why social cohesion is the answer”

Moderator

Andriy Kulykov, journalist, editor, expert in radio, television and media, UNDP Tolerance Envoy

Speakers

Registration

Social cohesion is often called the “glue” that keeps society together. This concept applies both to horizontal relations between different social groups and to vertical relations between people and government. Efforts aimed at providing social cohesion often focus on ensuring that everyone has a sense of belonging to the community, close ties with other members of the community. Weak connections in any of these dimensions can cause problems. Weak horizontal cohesion often leads to conflict, while weak vertical cohesion often results in a lack of trust between the population and the government. Of course, Ukraine has long had horizontal divisions in the field of social cohesion – between groups of political opponents or geographical regions, between vulnerable groups, such as ethnic minorities, between rural and urban populations, between youth and the elderly, between men and women. Instead, in the vertical dimension, there is a significant gap between the poorer working class and the not yet sufficiently strong middle class, as well as between the middle class and big business and political elites. Despite the efforts of international organizations and partners, the concept of social cohesion is little known to many civil society organizations in Ukraine, which could and should be actively involved in the process of building national unity and promoting peaceful conflict resolution. The purpose of this discussion at the Forum is to acquaint the Forum participants with the general concepts of social cohesion, to share new knowledge and lessons learned – in order to ensure a clear, holistic and common understanding of this concept by all participants. To discuss and develop ideas on how civil society organizations can strengthen social cohesion and national unity, in particular by focusing more attention on promoting dialogue, tolerance, and encouraging people to take an active civic stand. Questions for discussion: – What is social cohesion and why is it important? – What is horizontal and vertical social cohesion? What measures can be taken to strengthen such cohesion? – Discuss and suggest practical ways in which civil society organizations can strengthen social cohesion, as well as a culture of dialogue and inclusion. – How can tolerance, inclusion and the method of nonviolent communication strengthen cohesion in society? – Investing in the civic participation of young people as a way to eliminate divisions in society.

If you are the head of the organization and 2020 has drained all your energies, then make yourself a coffee / tea, sit comfortably and join our heart-to-heart conversation. Let’s talk about what is usually kept silent: about the pressure under which the leader lives; that leaders can break; about the leader’s right to weakness. About how to live on, if not only everything around falls apart, but you fall apart yourself. We share stories of our failures and lessons learned or not learned.
