This project should help learners to understand core concepts related to culture and cultural competence. This includes learning how to define culture creatively and to understand the process of intercultural competence development. The tasks carried out should build awareness of how cultures form, the importance of perspective switching and the nature of culture change. The project should focus on activities that help people understand how deeply and pervasively cultural differences influence us. Students should explore differences such as attitudes towards power and hierarchy in a variety of situations with a set of activities, from daily interactions to business ones, from current events to websites. A set of activities should focus on helping our students understand their own and other students┬┤ values, as a means of building self- and awareness of others. To navigate identity, we should define ourselves and focus on this project. A set of activities includes introductions, icebreakers and exercises that take people on a learning journey to understand, articulate and negotiate their cultural identities. To manage cultural transitions, we should set up frameworks and exercises to help individuals moving across cultures to plan for and manage their transitions effectively. It should update one of the most established arenas of our work with fresh thinking and ideas on how to best prepare people for cultural transitions. Knowledge of cultural differences needs to be translated into action, and this set of innovative exercises helps people learn and practice how to communicate successfully in various aims to
facilitate team cohesiveness and trust in intercultural situations. The activities in this project should be developed with the goal of building European teams. The exercises should include introductions, simulations, and a game whose aim is to facilitate teamcohesiveness and trust. Beyond understanding differences, a key component of cultural competence is being able to resolve differences. The focus will be on building creative problem solving skills required to navigate the complexities of various cultural situations
