Today, on the 19th of October, The Anna Lindh Foundation launches its brand new interactive digital game on intercultural citizenship education especially designed to be used by educators and youth. The game includes 11 activities, mostly taken from the Anna Lindh Education Handbook Intercultural Citizenship Education in the Euro-Mediterranean Region.
According to Eleonora Insalaco, Head of Operations and Intercultural Research, digital solutions reflect on the one hand the recommendation by consulted educators and the views of EuroMed populations as per the latest Intercultural Trends Survey 2020.
“We can see that 88% of respondents in Europe and 95% in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean think that digital technology can play an important role in facilitating dialogue between people from different cultures. Furthermore, 83% of Europeans and 89% of respondents in the Southern Mediterranean also think that skills for intercultural dialogue can be enhanced via digital tools” Insalaco said during the launch of the game.
The launch of the digital game takes place during the final evaluation session of the Virtual Regional Training for Trainers on Intercultural Citizenship Education organised by the ALF between May and June 2021.
The game is now available in English but soon French and Arabic versions of the game will also be available to both educators and players alike.
