Europe is a cross-cultural community and it’s co-creating content.

All countries together are creating spaces for dialogue and providing contextual information from different points of view.

Multiculturalism is a manifestation of liberal democracy based on mutual tolerance and cooperation. Europe´s culture has always been in constant flux, as it befits a society built on successive waves of immigration.

Diversity not only assumes that all individuals are unique, i.e., different, but that difference is indeed value-added. Within those changes, Europe always has been liberal-democratic, which implies a high degree of freedom of expression. That´s Europe, that´s what it is to be European!

 

Objectives: This course is for all those who are interested in improving their intercultural competencies and learning interactive methods to support learners’ integration from different cultures into a collaborating team.

The course’s main goal is to develop and acquire effective skills to overcome barriers to integrate new immigrants, develop their intercultural understanding and develop a European dimension of education.
