Promoting dialogue to end polarization

This campaign used online and offline tactics to create a platform for people to share their stories, engage in dialogue, and search for peaceful solutions to issues they are facing in their communities. It encouraged people to share their personal "grey" stories, and to reject the polarization that is dividing our society.

The campaign was held in 6 cities across the Netherlands, partnered with the cities of Amsterdam, Utrecht, and Tilburg, and gained national media coverage for its positive narrative and wide reach.
