Intercultural Competences Learning workshop 24 & 25 October online

This online training workshop is an introduction into intercultural learning, helping the participants to navigate intercultural encounters. In the first session, we will reflect about ourselves, our identity and values, as self-awareness is a key competence for good communication. We will also reflect on stereotypes, how to be aware of them and how to deal with them. In the second session, we will explore the relation between us and other(s), reflect on and experience intercultural encounter and give you tools on how to make these encounters easier to navigate.

ALF's Village

Le Festival Théâtres Nomades s'est tenu à Bruxelles du 18 au 21 août 2022. Dans le cadre de l'organisation de ce festival de théâtre et des arts de la rue, nous avons voulu donner une place toute particulière aux membres du réseau belge mais aussi aux réseaux internationaux de la Fondation Anna Lindh. En effet, le “Village de la FAL” avait pour but de présenter les diverses organisations de la société civile aux spectateur·ices mais aussi de créer des liens entre ces structures elles-mêmes.

Positive YOUth is a non-profit organisation striving to bring more positivity through self-development opportunities for local communities. We are looking for diverse self-development tools to support the innovative non-formal education method of mindfulness and use it for transforming our often critical minds into positive, passionate and We do it by starting with one single individual in the mirror - YOU. Positive mind is a source of physical well-being, tranquility, happiness and success which describes the best of our philosophy - to become the best versions of ourselves in order to inspire the peers and build supportive communities for a better future, for ourselves and the ones around.

Our vision is to together grow a supportive community of people, committed to lifelong learning and self-development in order to live a little bit more meaningful, mindful, sustainable and positive lives.
