The association Intercultura was founded in 2000 by 3 young citizens, who were very actively involved in the field of education. The aim of the association is to promote intercultural dialogue and human rights education. In the same way that biodiversity is essential to the health and well-being of human, we believe that cultural diversity and the learning of it, can empower us, and live better together. The approach of our work is based on the principles of “ Education Populaire” and international
solidarity. Intercultura organizes training courses, meetings and seminars, and helps to support projects (local associations, young people, municipalities, school etc.). We use methods based on cooperation and participation. People have the space to share experiences, and to fine solution through the resources produced by collective intelligence.
We develop and produce tools to stimulate: -Emergence of ideas -creativity- reflection-
discussion- Dialogue. The final objective is to empower individuals or local communities to act Intercultura have an expertise on social and cultural issues. We have developed many projects aiming at mixing rural and urban realities in order to appropriate the reciprocal stakes and to find solutions (Regeneration project, The Green Hand, Stay). We always try to value cultural diversity, and allow people who are far away from each other to meet, work together, and create something together.
