Tolerance Talks 2021 in Hybrid Mode

The 7th European Tolerance Talks – “FAIRNESS – The New Globalization” – will take place this year from May 19-22, 2021 as planned. “However, the first day in Villach will only be able to take place online, as the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences is still in distance learning.” This was announced by Superintendent and chairman of the organizer Denk.Raum.Fresach, Manfred Sauer, on Monday.

For the organizers, the hybrid appearance is no longer a challenge, as the talks had already been relocated into the Internet to a large extent last year due to the corona. For this year, Sauer expects a larger audience in Fresach, after there will be easing and opening steps in mid-May. But there is no longer any alternative to the student forum planned for Wednesday, May 19, and the tourism forum that will take place on the same day – they must be implemented in online mode.

Opening with table tennis world champion

A special highlight is planned for the evening on May 19 from 6 p.m. Instead of the regular opening reception, the Carinthian Table Tennis Association will hold an exhibition match with table tennis world champion and Paralympics winner Jochen Wollmert from Germany in its Klagenfurt training center (Wörthersee Stadium). Wollmert, winner of the Pierre de Coubertin Medal, is also a speaker at the student forum.
