Can You Be Solidary On An Empty Stomach Europe Talks Solidarity Podcast

Can you be solidary on an empty stomach?

In this episode we approach solidarity from what brings people together around the table: food. But what happens if you don’t have enough food and how does this connect with migration, human rights and social inclusion? This and more is part of our conversation with Amine Diaré Condé, the founder of Essen für Alle, a food distribution initiative in Switzerland.

Europe Talks Solidarity Podcast | What can happen if we open up to others? - Peter Mitchell

What can happen if we open up to others?

What if we opened up our hearts, minds and doors to solidarity? In this episode, we’re in Germany to talk to Peter Mitchell. He wrote an article for “Europe Talks Solidarity” about a project for young migrants called “Café Bamako”. He invites us to go beyond the idea of solidarity as assistance by civil society towards “people in need”.

Instead, he suggests that we look at it as an opportunity for people to empower themselves.
