A learning journey through the Anna Lindh Report “Intercultural Trends and Social Change in the Euro-Mediterranean region”
The online course “Euro-Mediterranean Intercultural Trends” is based on the Anna Lindh Report on Intercultural Trends and Social Change in the Euro-Mediterranean region, including a unique public opinion survey among a representative sample of the Euro-Mediterranean population about mutual perceptions, values and openness to diversity.
The spring edition of the course is in English and runs from May 12th to June 8th 2020, jointly delivered by the Anna Lindh Foundation and UNIMED, the Mediterranean Universities Union.
Participation in the course is free of charge. Registered participants will receive an email message with detailed instructions on how to access the course.
The course duration is four weeks, with an estimated commitment of around two hours per week. The course is video-based and interactive, in this way participants will have the possibility to discuss the content and the main course messages with peers from around the Mediterranean. Learners who will complete the course activities will receive a Certificate of Participation.
The course is composed of four modules:
Module 1 Representation of the Mediterranean and Mutual Interest. In this module, the main themes are common values and attitudes, interests and expectations of the people living in the EuroMed region and their perception towards other countries/people.
Module 2 Values and Mutual Perception. In this module, the learners will explore the most important values for people living around the Mediterranean and how the role of women is perceived and it is expected to change.
Module 3 Interaction across Cultures. In this module, the learner will explore how people from the two shores of the Mediterranean interact and how they construct the representation of the “other” as well as the role of media in this process.
Module 4 Living in Diversity. Through this module, the learner will explore the impact of religion on people’s point of view and what could be efficient actions to contrast radicalisation and for better living in multi-cultural cities and societies.
