When you ask participants of international youth projects what their most valuable experience was during their mobility, most answer the exchange of culture between the participants. And that is exactly what the Erasmus+ KA2 project INTERACT stands for and aims to enhance by developing an Intercultural Action Competence Tool (IAC). As one of the partners on this project, we are really excited to share more information about this amazing program.
All Erasmus+ mobility projects include a component of intercultural communication in a non formal setting, for example, through the organisation of intercultural nights and conversations between participants. INTERACT believes that more can be gained from this intercultural exchange. Therefore, a simple tool needs to be developed that promotes the learning of IAC.
The output of INTERACT will aid youth workers to integrate this element into their projects without additional cost or effort, assuring that this competence will be fruitful for their lifelong learning process. In addition, INTERACT establishes a societal need, namely, dealing with an increasingly diverse and globalised society within which their tool can empower youth workers to cooperate peacefully and purposefully with people from different cultural backgrounds.
