Corso di Formazione “Babylon Reinvented: How to Approach ICL”
23/06/2014 - 30/06/2014
Training course will take place in multicultural city of Kharkiv and bring together 30 youth workers from 10 counties, 5 EU and 5 from EECA. During 7 days they will be working on intercultural learning. Looking back into history we can see that there were several waves of migration, so basically Europe now is a home for different nations and cultures, This is reality where we live and it doesn’t simplify it. Living back to back to each other in a multicultural environment there is a huge distance between us. There is no country in Europe with its borders where people speak only one language, where only people of one nation live, therefore with this TC we would like to provide youth workers with tools for “intercultural learning” as an effort to understand the complexity of today’s world by understanding others and ourselves better and to empower them to deal with the potential of change, which can have a positive and constructive impact in our societies. The aims of the TC are: -to bring young people from different background in order to evaluate our own cultures -to enable youngsters to discover the origins and mechanism of racism, intolerance, xenophobia -to foster understanding of being active citizens -to enable young people to better face the challenges of current reality -to develop a more flexible attitude to the context of cultural diversity in society; -to develop a larger capacity of communication between people from different cultures. We are looking for 3 motivated youngsters: available places left: 3 – Participation fee for each project is 30% of the travel costs, plus the annual membership fee 2014 (30€).
