Main objectives of Elan Interculturel are:
- To create a better understanding of how diversity affects our life
To reach our objectives we do trainings for professionals working in intercultural situations or individuals living cross-cultural transition or in cultural contact zones. We participate in collaborations and pilot projects to develop new methods and tools. Finally, we undertake research in intercultural and social psychology aiming at a better understanding of intercultural dynamics.
Since its creation Elan Interculturel provided intercultural trainings to approximately 1000 people, organized an international seminar about diversity and creativity, participated in four Grundtvig Learning Partnerships and four multilateral partnerships on the theme of intercultural dialogue and adaptation.
