Find the interview given to RCF radio by Father Patrice Chocholski, director of The ICM, about the Mediterranean Process. 

Started on the 4th of October 2021, our Mediterranean Process aims to bring the Mediterranean shores closer tougher by considering the field of religions as an integral part enabling to respond to the crisis and challenges  appearing us. Our objective is also to build a network allowing a better understanding of each one’s problems in order to discuss, debate and try to bring answer to uncertainties. The charter constitutes the first milestone our initiative and represents the spirit of the process and the work in which we have thought to commit. In addition to this founding document, we offer you four lines of work decided by our team:

– « How to think theologically and anthropologically about uncertainty? »;

– « It is in the minds of men that divisions are born. Dialogue of cultures in the educational field”;

– “Identities in motion. Singularity – belonging – identity ”;

– “Mediterranean and territories, from “their home” to “ours”. Geopolitics – environment – demography ”.

2nd of October – Conference of Dominique Bourel (director of research to the CNRS and former director of the Jerusalem French Centre) on « Le dialogue en Méditerranée selon la vision de Martin Buber ». The videoconference is available in French underneath.

Christian Salenson’s conference, « La crise et après? Inventer un nouvel art de vivre » (The Crisis and after? Invent a new way of life), took place on the 26th May at the Centre le Mistral in Marseille. Organized by the association Chemins de Dialogue and the Catholic Institute of Mediterranean, this event labels the starting point of the Mediterranean process.

Through the shared experience of the 2020 pandemic, C. Salenson is looking at different themes (liberty, death, relation with time, etc.) to remark the fragility of our society’s rules related to modernity, in order to think a new way of life.
