Over the last 46 years the World’s population doubled from 3.7 billion to 7.4 billion. Development of economies and technologies lead to unimaginable growth of traveling, migration, intermarriage, trade and essentially all human interactions. Migration flows make our societies increasingly multicultural, which can happen on harmonic ways of planned migration and immigration policies, and can take the extremely chaotic form, as it happened during the last humanitarian catastrophe in Middle East.
People are exposed to various cultural and faith traditions that once were hidden behind several curtains. For a searching mind the whole World Cultural Heritage is open to be explored and exploited, but this outstanding opportunity sometimes is causing more confusion than clarity in minds and hearts of the people.
Intercultural challenges appear on individual and organizational level. It is evident that societies face the extensive internationalization of businesses. Not a very long time ago it was quite possible to operate your local small scale business activities without caring too much about the international frameworks, trends and challenges, and now the effects of those schemes are changing even local business landscapes in very short runs.
There is a lot of work done on developing intercultural communication skills of the people, there are several legislative and program frameworks which are aimed at raising the efficiency of integration and communication processes, but in reality it is clear that it is not enough. Youth was, is and will be always on the frontiers of all the processes. On one hand it is one of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable parts of the society (which is especially relevant for several aging societies), but on the other hand due to its natural flexibility, youth energy and huge potential can be also one of the major forces for transforming the potential Clashes to fruitful Dialogues. To do so it needs a certain degree of awareness and concrete competences to operate in this global village that we live now in.
We feel it is important for youth leaders to understand the characteristics of mono-ethnic versus poly-ethnic culture. We want to address identity change issues in relation to the mix of cultures and migration. However, we want to abstract from the migration process as such and focus on what happens and how to deal with the post migration effect. Cultures can be assimilated or integrated. History teach us the dramatic effects of ghettoization. We want also to touch historical parallels of what happened to Babylonian culture and compare to nowadays Syrian culture.
This Training Course is aimed at developing efficient strategies and methodological approaches to address the aforementioned issues through our day to day work within our communities. We do hope that networks of like-minded youth NGOs and groups can change a lot in this field of Intercultural contacts and create possibilities to pass from Clashes to more Harmonic ways of living through this processes.
