The 5th European Tolerance Talks 2019 in Carinthia have set a new visitors’ record. Nearly 800 participants took part in the three-day dialogue forum in Fresach, another 200 attended the tourism forum and the opening reception in Villach. More than 500 people watched the discussions over the Internet. A record of the more than 20 statements, papers, interviews and podium rounds will be made available on the website in the coming weeks. The tolerance talks were funded under the Rural Development Program with funding from federal, state and the European Union. In addition, the city of Villach, the province of Carinthia, the Federal Chancellery and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs contributed to the fact that the talks could be realized at a quite demanding level. “After the expiry of the EU funding in 2019, the cards will be reshuffled, but it goes on,” assures the chairman of the organizer Denk.Raum.Fresach, the Protestant superintendent Manfred Sauer.
