Once upon a time there was a person named Carol, living in a cozy, beautiful town, surrounded by loved ones. Carol felt very good in its environment, understood everyone around and easily could find the best way of dealing with everyday challenges. (S)he liked long walks and was always curious what’s beyond the town’s borders. Once Carol walked the whole day and found another town. It looks similar to the known one: buildings had roofs, trees were green, but here and there Carol could find things, which were strange, interesting, but for sure different. Also people’s behaviors on the street and rituals in restaurants and public places were not clear. How could I speak with them? How could my life in this town look like? How to deal with these differences? Many questions came to Carol’s mind. (S)he was not aware that with all these questions the life long journey to reaching intercultural competences began. We invite you to join the journey.
The project is such a journey, started by organisations from Poland, Italy, Greece, Germany and Portugal aims to develop intercultural competences of young people and youth workers across Europe. On our way there will be many activities, we kindly invite you to take part, like: online meetings, youth exchanges, training courses, local workshops etc. Finally we would like to create a game, which will support in developing empathy, which we see as crucial to communicate effectively in cross-cultural situations and to relate appropriately in a variety of cultural contexts.
You are welcome to join the project’s activities. We will be happy to cooperate with you. If you are interested in intercultural learning, gamification, education in cross-cultural groups or international work, contact us.

The game is a tool to enthance intercultural learning. It aims to reduce ethnocentric perspectives, fight prejudices and promote solidarity actions that support equality in human dignity and respect for the plurality of cultural identities. Based on constructivism the aim of cultural learning is to develop the competencies, mostly empathy which help to recognise and understand different perspectives. Empathy allows us to intentionally shift our perspective towards that of another culture and eventually towards that of another person in that cultural context. In the game we would like to challenge players to take the position of a person from a different culture to understand it’s perspective. The players will go through certain tasks which will develop their competences to interact with people from other cultural contexts.
You can get to know more about the game and possibilities of using it in the educational context from the MANUAL.
The game consists on few elements:
– MOBILE APP to use on the phone, tablet, computer
– BOARD, PAWNS, RULES to print before starting the game
– CULTURE CARDS to print or to use in the app (according to your own preferences).
We wish you exciting game and travel through different cultures!
