Did you discover that your friend from East Europe always wears pyjamas and you don’t? Are you the one that is always late while your friends from the North are always waiting for you? Have you ever walked into a French toilet and didn’t know where to sit? Would you like to join us in our mission of exploring these small things? We invite you to discover differences in daily day culture, like food, clothes, time, music, dances, customs and ways of communicating with each other etc. In fact, all the other things that shape our every day life and have roots in our culture. • Activities using the local Outdoor environment for exploring ICL How do you connect a lake, a mountain and a forest with Intercultural Learning? Well, the same way you connect a hike in the mountain with the love of your life, or a canoe with the meeting of cultures! Come and explore how to use outdoor activities (ex. hike, orienteering, picnic, star gazing etc.) in intercultural learning – ICL. We will be focusing on communication, different aspects of culture (general, national, personal etc.), cultural clashes and intercultural projects. In both groups participants will also develop their own tools for ICL. Team of trainers: Rodrigo Vilarinho Portugal Milena Lazic Serbia Nina Arnus Slovenia Panayiotis Theodorou Cyprus
