Intercultural life - educación activa por un mundo intercultural

Through our work we provide the framework for creative and lifelong learning that enables individuals to develop their skills of interaction, reflection and social action.

It is a current challenge to learn to coexist with cultural and social differences and to be able to adapt to permanent changes. To this end, we believe it is essential to facilitate intercultural dialogue, to help the individual to develop a critical attitude and to encourage his or her active involvement in our society.

Carrying out this project we want to promote the local development of the Vega Granadina and the disadvantaged areas of the city of Granada. We aimed to promote understanding between young people from different cultures and contexts, open horizons for young people with fewer opportunities both in rural areas and disadvantaged neighborhoods of the city, encourage the socio-cultural life of the Vega of Granada and especially its rural areas, encourage youth participation, creativity, healthy lifestyles, and respect for the environment. By providing spaces for intercultural dialogue between international volunteers, young people from rural areas, cities and the local community we would like to bring Europe closer to rural areas in Andalusia and to disadvantaged areas of Granada through the reinforcement of the identity of this area revaluing its immense cultural and environmental heritage.

In cooperation with the collaborating schools and Vega Educa together with other groups will be carried out activities of Education for Development that focused on the dissemination and awareness on topics such as Human Rights, Environment and Ecology, Gender Equality, European Citizenship, Solidarity and Culture of Peace. Within these collaborating institutions will also be developed activities of linguistic animation in English and French.
