A hybrid conference, briefings and trainings took place from 9-12 of March in Madrid, organised by the Conference of European Churches (CEC) on security awareness and crisis management in Europe.
The conference, briefings and trainings were hosted by the Spanish Evangelical Church in Madrid and its President Rev. Alfredo Abad Heras. These events were held as part of the project Safer and Stronger Communities in Europe (SASCE), carried out by CEC, together with European religious partners, and funded by the Internal Police Fund of the European Commission.
The speakers at the conference, trainings and briefings were Dr Elizabeta Kitanovic, CEC Executive Secretary for Human Rights, Rev. Dr Patrick Roger Schnabel from EKBO/EKD, Ophir Revach, CEO of SACC by EJC and Rev. Alfredo Abad, President of the Spanish Evangelical Church.
