Rotaract Europe and Rotaract Mediterranean have teamed up for their social project this year 

Are you ready to have Free Intelligent Conversations with us?

What is Free Intelligent Conversation?

Free Intelligent Conversation (FreeIC) is a non-profit organization that facilitates engaging conversations between strangers in public places. 

An intelligent conversation takes place whenever people seek to learn from each other.

FreeIC provides clubs and districts with the necessary training and resources to plan a successful event. Once trained, organizing an outing is easy: go to a public space, hold up signs that read “Free Intelligent Conversation,” and talk with people about anything and everything. And most importantly: have fun!

What are the benefits? 

Through our partnership with FreeIC, we want to encourage meaningful face-to-face conversations in our communities and connect individuals with different backgrounds and viewpoints at an interpersonal level.

When we embrace our differences and capitalize on our similarities, we break down social barriers, challenge stereotypes, and build better, more interpersonally connected communities – one engaging conversation at a time. 

Not only does this promote peace, one of the six areas of focus of Rotary, but it is also a great opportunity to strengthen the ties that we have with our communities
