Peter Mitchell What Can Happen If We Open Up To Othres

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.
