BEYOND – Rethinking Intercultural Learning
28th June – 3rd July 2015, Corato, Italy
Multiculturalism, Intercultural Learning and Cultural Diversity
This seminar project was born from the need to reflect, to process, to rework the concept of INTERCULTURAL LEARNING after many years through which this topic was mainstreamed at different levels, in formal and non-formal education, in youth work. And still is a topic that is needed in nowadays society, in Europe and all over the world.“BEYOND” will focus a specific element, referring cross-culture and multiculturalism: the “real life oriented” perspective of differences in everyday life.
In specific, we will explore how all the elements that are rooted in cultures and shape our everyday life, (Food, Music, Languages, Identities, Communication patterns, Relations, time, personal culture, relation towards other cultures, roles in society), can be even more worked, developed in international projects, and most of all how these international projects can have a deeper impact at the local level, where the “intercultural dimension” and multiculturalism become extremely concrete and “everyday life issues.
With “BEYOND” we will create the proper space and time through which we will have an ideal look-back at the knowledge, the practices, the competencies, the tools which were developed about intercultural learning, in many trainings, seminars, by trainers, participants, youth organizations, institutions, and then look-ahead, to see which steps are needed to go forward.
The seminar aims at raising awareness on the importance of the “Intercultural LearningDimension” of youth workers,youth leaders, organizations; how to make steps-ahead with the practices of ICL; how to improve the quality of international trainings and projects on ICL; how to bring and have a deeper impact in the local communities supporting a better understanding of different cultures.
