The digital revolution has connected global communities like no other time in human history.

Education and enterprise compete on an international stage for talent and business, taking many of us far from our homes in search of new and challenging opportunities.

Along the way we learn new languages and bump up against new traditions but it’s the cultural differences that most powerfully colour your experience of a new community.

Understanding the history of a place and its values is key to establishing respectful, sustainable relationships and avoiding the pitfalls of social and cultural misunderstandings.

„ (...) je ne voulais pas manquer l'occasion de vous exprimer toute ma gratitude eu égard à savoir que vous aviez bien voulu nous transmettre lors de la formation en interculturalité tenue en Allemagne. 

Je suis sorti très enrichi de la formation grâce à la fluidité de votre communication, mais aussi par votre manière de la communiquer, car, savoir est une chose, mais savoir transmettre en est une autre.

Je vous prierai, tout simplement de multiplier ce genre de formation à l'avenir, qui à n'en pas douter, contribuerait à améliorer significativement les connaissances de la communautés universitaire sur toutes articulations qui tournent autour de l'interculturalité."
