Diversity beyond trapped barriers
Start date: Aug 1, 2010,
Taking into consideration that contact between people from different cultures does not automatically lead to improved mutual understanding and that many people feel unable to cope with or even threatened by the presence of persons with customs and habits rooted in other cultures, the TC "Diversity beyond trapped barriers" is aimed to question typical approaches of Intercultural learning within youth work with regard to qualification requirements of youth workers involved and to what and how young people should be taught within the context of intercultural youth work. Therefore the participants of the project will face during the course three main priority learning areas for intercultural learning processes as perception structures, social attitudes and the resulting types of behavior; understanding that the overall aim of any initial or future projects must be intercultural learning - as a principle for the learning processes within these activities themselves and as the general objective of European youth work.
