Promoting cultural literacy and intercultural dialogue is one of the main challenges of our time. Successful communication and peaceful sharing of space and resources in a globalized world depend on it. This interactive workshop with practical exercises offers an overview of three areas of knowledge which are central for the development of intercultural competences: intercultural communication, diversity and conflict management. (Strong) intercultural competences help individuals find common ground with others and (re)value differences. The workshop is open for all members of the school.
