On the 9th – 10th of January, OTB Europe, together with partners from UK, North Macedonia, Greece, Portugal, Cyprus and Spain have participated in the kick-off meeting for the Erasmus+ KA2 project “The InterMEDs – Fostering ‘Intercultural MEDiators’ as a practice for establishing communities coalition and mutual understanding”. During the meeting, the partners did introductions, project overview and planning for the future. Furthermore, partners presented ongoing activities such as creation of intellectual outputs and designing of trainings.
The project is built upon the special training of members of both communities, either local ones, or migrant communities to become InterMEDs, individuals who will act as specific mediators for the exchange of different cultures, representing key-skills of social responsibility and intercultural understanding and the skills to use all forms of promotion, such as arts, culture, media, training for the enhancement of respect, tolerance, cooperation and communities coalition.
Next meeting is scheduled to take place in Lisbon, June 2020.
