Intercultural Competences Across The School Curriculum

 

  

 

The aims of the

 

Comenius in Intercultural Competences Across The School Curriculum (Circum)

 

 

include the following:

 

 

  • Help young people to develop the ability to recognize inequality, injustice, racism, prejudice and bias.
  • Equip young people to challenge and to try to change these manifestations when they encounter them.
  • Enable young people to appreciate the richness of a diversity of cultures.
  • Support young people in practical ways to recognize and to challenge prejudice and discrimination where they exist.

 

Someone with some degree of intercultural competence is someone who 

 

  • is able to see relationships between different cultures - both internal and external to a society
  • is able to mediate, that is interpret each in terms of the other, either for themselves or for other people
  • has a critical or analytical understanding of their own and other cultures
  • is conscious of their own perspective, of the way in which their thinking is culturally
  • is determined, rather than believing that their understanding and perspective is natural
