Intercultural Exchange and Disabilities - How Do They Fit Together?

26 June, 2:00 p.m., Room A/B
Hosted by
Engagement Global

This workshop will present the cooperation between two schools as an example of a functioning international and intercultural dialogue addressing special educational needs. This German-Tunisian program is a successful model of global learning for people with disabilities. The partnership between the LVR - Christophorus School for physically impaired children in Bonn and the UTAIM El May center for the handicapped in Djerba has run for ten years.

Photographs and radio features centered on intercultural dialogue and disabilities will be used to facilitate discussion of various questions, such as: In a globalized world, how do people learn together and from one another?

  • How do people in other countries deal with handicaps?
  • Are there new perspectives handicapped Germans and Tunisians can develop in the context of global learning and international cooperation?
  • What has been the outcome of ten years of cooperation? (Best practices for an international approach.)
  • What have been the challenges and pitfalls of cooperation? What are its mission and visions?
  • Which stakeholders does such a project need to succeed?

This workshop is meant to be interactive. Journalists, politicians, NGO representatives, teachers and bloggers from various disciplines and of all ages are welcome to take part.
