The ICE and LCD training resources of the Pestalozzi programme offer teachers and trainers of primary and secondary schools a « bank of activities » to learn to better teach and better live the values of the Council of Europe in intercultural education and education for socio-cultural diversity.

They were developed by experts who participated in the training modules for teacher trainers. They were edited for publication by Ms Pascale Mompoint-Gaillard (for ICE), General Rapporteur of the Module series, and by Ms Ildikó Lázár (for LCD), coordinator of the module series on education for linguistic and cultural diversity. We invite you to consult them, to use them and send us your comments in order that we can continue to improve them.
