Transatlantic Dialogue










Dear all,

The TAD conference series on global citizens, held in Luxembourg since 2008, explore the significance of culture / liberal education for fostering global citizenship from both US and European perspectives. The 4 editions of the Transatlantic Dialogue have been an amazing experience and success. The Dialogue brings together individuals and groups to share ideas, knowledge, experiences and expertise that can be adapted to the needs of the individual partners.


‘The reality today is that we are all interdependent and have to co-exist on this small planet. Therefore, the only sensible and intelligent way of resolving differences and clashes of interests,. whether between individuals or nations, is through dialogue.’

Dalai Lama
