Study Trips, Tours & Intercultural Mediation

 

Mediation between cultures and guidance for excursions and trips

Every human being is endowed with intelligence, cognition and creativity, and is capable of establishing their own goals based on what they observe and learn. When it comes to different cultures, however, erroneous interpretations of the “other” culture’s ways of thinking and/or acting may arise, leading to possible misunderstandings or even arguments. Mediation between cultures is an attempt to clear up issues that are a priori unintelligible, or difficult to understand, transform them into objective data and dissolve existing conflicts. In this manner autonomy is restored to those who are trying to get to know and understand a given environment, attitudes and ways of organizing daily life that differ from their own.
