Applications are now open for a one–day intensive workshop on INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION at CEU on Saturday, 18 March 2017 from 10.00-17.00.

The workshop aims to bring together people with different cultural backgrounds in order to share intercultural examples and stories, to offer a short insight into theories of cultural dimensions and to enhance intercultural communication skills through games, role plays and simulations. We encourage participants to bring their own stories, examples, experiences in order to have a truly interactive and informative workshop in an open, tolerant and curious ambience.

For the past six years she has been working on educational projects at CEU and currently she is working at the Global Learning Center of UNHCR. She has been working in an intercultural environment for many years, interacting with people from various cultural and religious backgrounds on a daily basis. This determined her to learn more about intercultural communication and to take part in various trainings programs at home and abroad to become a trainer in intercultural communication.
