Resources for Intercultural Education
Based on real-life Film Material
It is through the mirror of others that we learn to know ourselves.Stella Ting-Toomey
As our societies grow more diverse we also experience increasing tensions between cultural, racial and religious groups. There is an urgent need for individuals and communities to develop intercultural competencies. Intentional cross-cultural interactions support the growth of leadership skills, the widening of perspectives and the building of mutual trust to bridge differences.
We offer a variety of engaging tools to initiate dialogue and develop and practice intercultural competence. Our educational tools are based on authentic, real-life film material and tell gripping stories on the interactions of youth from diverse socio-economic, racial, and cultural backgrounds. The tools are designed to be used for curricula, community engagement projects and the public.
