Palazzo De Piro
Converse at Palazzo de Piro is a Christian-inspired think-tank encouraging a continuous dialogue promoting a holistic human experience and a societal development that empowers every member of society. During this forthcoming year, the Converse project intends to engage a wide cross-section of Maltese society around the vital question “What Kind of Society would we Like?” The itinerary of these Conversations is simple and focused and is conducted in a spirit of broad and open dialogue. Converse prepared an invitational document to provide a springboard for the exchange of ideas and opinions during the breakfast meeting. Each meeting will bring together persons from a particular sector who will reflect upon the theme of the document viewed from their area of specialization. The dialogue process will convene members of civil society, unions, business, sociologists and scientists, religious communities, educationalists, artists, politicians and journalists. Our intention is that the document will evolve through this discussion process as well as through a blog in our website which invites the general public to participate. The final paper will be presented to the decision-makers in our society as well as to the public in the second half of 2012.
