Description of the tool

The group is divided in 3 groups. Each group gets their role card and they have 20 minutes to prepare their culture as described on the role card (see attachment). On all role cards is said that they should practice it very profound. After this preparation the whole group comes together.Then, the trainer will instruct them (see attached story). Participants will have 30 minutes to build a shelter. Each culture has one observer who gets questions (see attachment).After the construction phase the evaluation follows: first in the 3 culture groups then in plenary. Additionally there can be also an evaluation of Monomulti as an ICL method (questions see attachment).
