Who we areDialoguePerspectives. Discussing Religions and Worldviews e.V. is a Berlin-based European platform that is independent of any political party or ideology. We are committed to strengthening plurality and democracy in Europe through educational and civil society programmes. Our aim is to develop and implement impact-oriented civil society programmes that address current and future challenges facing European society.

Our multifaceted work makes a decisive contribution to European understanding, cooperation and the shaping of a pluralistic, democratic and solidarity-based Europe, as well as to the defence of European civil society. European societies are plural. DialoguePerspectives e.V. recognises this fact by focusing on the development and communication of plurality competence. Plurality competence includes the dedicated advocacy of equality, acceptance and recognition as well as the resolute fight against group-focused enmity. DialoguePerspectives e.V. brings together civil society actors from all areas of society and with varied religious and worldview backgrounds to collectively develop perspectives on the central challenges facing our European society. In doing so, we are committed to long-term changes aimed at creating an open, resilient and democratic society.

In our work, we do not see crises and conflicts as obstacles, but rather as occasions for strengthening cooperation, building trust and deepening mutual understanding.

In addition, DialoguePerspectives e.V. offers workshops and consultations for institutions, associations and initiatives that require the expertise of the DialoguePerspectives team.

DialoguePerspectives e.V. relies on the active participation and collaboration of its programme participants and alumni. Over the past few years, the international DialoguePerspectives network has become a central resource for identifying our programme priorities, for shaping these and for transferring the programme’s findings to all areas of social interaction.

The DialoguePerspectives team brings together a wide range of skills, expertise, experience and biographical backgrounds to develop and implement innovative concepts, methods and tools for a pluralistic European society.


The programmes administered by DialoguePerspectives e.V. include:

DialoguePerspectives. Discussing Religions and Worldviews, which explores and carries out new and innovative forms of societally oriented interreligious-worldview dialogue.
