Zaytoon organizes a weekly dialogue conferences aiming not only to give information or teaching, but it aims also to improve attendees communication skills,  activate the youth role, create a social network, build bridges and open doors between all the different political sides, improve the researching skills and to raise the awareness and understanding for the very basic concepts such as: democracy, Human rights…etc. These series of conferences started in December 2012 in Cairo.

The conferences are going perfectly, there were many topics and issues we could open, understand and discus such as (democracy as a way to freedom - transition justice - civil society role - and many other issues)
