In the first episode of Aħseb u Ara, the discussion is about polarization in public discourse, why it happens, and how it is growing. The importance of meeting the “other” is mentioned, both when we agree with each other and when we disagree. What can we do so that dialogue brings unity and not division?

🎙️ Guests

Daniel Darmanin – President of the Justice and Peace Commission
Benjamin Flores-Martin – Delegate of the Archbishop for Youth

🎙️ Presenters

Emma Lanzon – Malta Catholic Youth Network
Mark Cachia – Justice and Peace Commission

Aħseb u Ara is a podcast hosted by the Malta Catholic Youth Network (MCYN) and the Justice and Peace Commission. This project is the result of a collaboration that began in 2021 and led to the Youth Engagement Study research, which was carried out in the same year.

The aim of these podcasts was to discuss themes from the social teaching of the Church. While there is an element of information in each episode, both entities wished these themes to be discussed in a conversational style, relevant to young people. Therefore, in each episode, the two guests are young people who share their experiences with us.
