Four International Dialogues on Family Security

Families across the world today face a variety of internal and external threats.  Some threats, like domestic violence, are as old as humanity.  Others, like climate change, are relatively new, expanding problems.  Four 2024 Learning Life public dialogues on the theme “Understanding & Addressing Threats to Family Security” will focus on five major threats to families’ security – poverty, war, climate change, domestic violence, and the internet (social media, gaming, etc.) – how families experience these threats, and how these challenges can be addressed.  Each dialogue will be 1.5 hours via Zoom, and feature one or more experts who will provide some brief background to inform the dialogue, the perspectives of families affected by the threat, then open discussion on the topic/threat of the day’s dialogue.

RSVP to attend the dialogues.  Each dialogue will have its own Zoom link.  You will receive the link and other dialogue info in the days before the dialogue.  Please mark your calendar for every dialogue you plan to attend.  If you can afford it, please donate here to support the dialogues.  We ask supporters to give $10 per dialogue, or $32 for all four dialogues.

These four dialogues are part of Learning Life’s Family Diplomacy Initiative (FDI).  Launched in 2016, FDI is working to connect, train and empower a growing international corps of volunteer family diplomats (FDs) to advocate effectively for the needs, concerns and aspirations of families worldwide via nonprofits, businesses, media and governments.  The dialogues help Learning Life identify families across the world affected by major problems we are focusing on, and people who may be qualified and motivated to serve as FDs.
