Has Corona messed up your travel plans? Are you interested in an exchange with other cultures and would you like to bring a spark of interculturality into your home?
Then we have the perfect solution for you: Building Walls - Breaking Walls online Edition!
In this project, young people or young adults from Israel, Palestine, Ireland and Switzerland meet and discuss cultural, religious and political walls and tear them down together. But also completely «normal» everyday topics are discussed together and the corona pandemic and its effects on the different countries and you individually. You can expect an interactive and varied program, which differs from everyday school life, and above all the chance to get to know young people from all over the world.
Development of new forms of intercultural exchange (reaction to the current situation of the climate debate and the corona pandemic)
The participants of the 4 countries get to know each other via these online formats and thus have the opportunity to prepare for a future physical exchange or to experience an online alternative.
During the project, the participants learn to reflect on their own and foreign cultures, find common ground and encounter differences with tolerance and openness
