DayCul - Act daily, think interculturally

Training Course

27 June - 4 July 2014 | Delnice, Croatia

This training project was born from a need to offer participants a chance to discover phenomena of culture and cultural diversity from the “real life oriented” perspective of differences in everyday life.
In specific, exploring Religion, Traditions, Food, Music, Languages, Nationalities, History, Communication patterns, Relations, Time, Jokes, Fashion, Personal culture, Relation towards other cultures, Power issues, Gender and Sex, Roles in society and all the other things that shape our everyday life (behaviour, identity, beliefs, values and rules) and all of them are deeply rooted in our culture. By acknowledging the importance of culture in everyday life and understanding that these set of regulations differ from group to group that one belongs to, participants will understand that these topics are essence of intercultural learning and are important part of becoming sensitive to cultural differences. For the sake of comprehending obstacles (stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination and violence) that occur during intercultural dialogue and finding possibilities for overcoming these problems, one first has to understand one’s own culture. Aim: The training course aims at developing the intercultural competencies of youth workers and leaders in organizing international youth projects through exploration of cultural diversity from a perspective of real everyday life and use of it as a tool to discover identity (become aware of your own culture so that you can open to others who are different). What will happen? 6 training days in which we will live and learn together, in order to: • understand the multiple forms of culture and intercultural dialogue through exploration of cultural diversity from a perspective of everyday life; • stimulate and challenge youth workers to use very different cultural environment as a tool to discover identity; • discover and acknowledge the importance that influence of culture has on person’s perception of reality, everyday behaviour and identity; • discuss common European values; • take initiative to create activities and projects on intercultural learning for the local contexts and realities; • create an interactive learning and reflection group of youth workers that will afterwards lay the foundations for future international cooperation in Youth in Action projects.
