This part of our web site is dedicated to aspects of intercultural understanding and education.

Firstly all the training activities of the Pestalozzi Programme by nature also opportunities for intercultural encounters and we would like to bring these intercultural aspects of our work to the forefront. Secondly, we are also working on a project on “Intercultural education and exchanges” which promotes the development of intercultural competence as one of the key competences needed in today’s world.


The general aim of this project is to offer an educational rationale and conceptual framework for the development of intercultural competence as well as the necessary instruments for the full integration of the development of this key competence for mutual understanding in diversity as a constituent part into mainstream education.

The expected result of this project is the introduction of a systematic description of intercultural competence in school curricula as well as the dissemination of teaching and training resources for intercultural education
