  1. 1. Kharkiv Women Civiс Organization Center “Perspective” invites you to join the Training Course «Babylon Reinvented: How to Approach ICL» in Kharkiv from 23 -30 June 2014 Training course will take place in multicultural city of Kharkiv and bring together 30 youth workers from 10 counties, 5 EU and 5 from EECA. During 7 days they will be working on intercultural learning. Looking back into history we can see that there were several waves of migration, so basically Europe now is a home for different nations and cultures, This is reality where we live and it doesn't simplify it. Living back to back to each other in a multicultural environment there is a huge distance between us. There is no country in Europe with its borders where people speak only one language, where only people of one nation live, therefore with this TC we would like to provide youth workers with tools for “intercultural learning” as an effort to understand the complexity of today’s world by understanding others and ourselves better and to empower them to deal with the potential of change, which can have a positive and constructive impact in our societies. The aims of the TC are: -to bring young people from different background in order to evaluate our own cultures -to enable youngsters to discover the origins and mechanism of racism, intolerance, xenophobia -to foster understanding of being active citizens -to enable young people to better face the challenges of current reality -to develop a more flexible attitude to the context of cultural diversity in society; -to develop a larger capacity of communication between people from different cultures;
  2. 2. What to bring Presentation about your organisation: There'll be a special moment in which participants will have the opportunity to present their sending organisations. You can do this through an oral presentation, a PowerPoint presentation or bring some visual aids, such as leaflets, brochures, videos or any other promotional materials you deem suitable. The main idea behind this presentation is for all of us to get to know your association a bit better, so that we can keep in touch and possibly cooperate on future projects. Presentation about your country Have you ever heard of an Intercultural evening? Global Village? Country presentations? Well, in order for us to get to know each other better and to discover more about our different countries, we will organise a small event to celebrate our diversity. We will have the opportunity to exhibit physical tokens representative of our country and culture (space for this will be provided). We’re talking about food, music, dancing, drinks, images, videos…etc. So please don’t forget to bring your flag and any or all of the things listed that may allow us to see, listen or taste your culture. Other Don’t leave your camera at home; take it with you to capture every moment! How to get there? If your flight is not directly to Kharkiv is can be easily reachable by trains, busses. There is also bus that goes directly from the Borispil airport (Kiev). For those who arrive to Zhulyany aiport (Kiev) is better to take train.

Reimbursment: 70%of travel costs respecting the budget will be reimbursed to the participants on the account of their sending organizations.
