Building Intercultural Competences: Local Debate in Portugal

On 4th March the partners from Associação Check-IN – Cooperação e Desenvolvimento have conducted a local debate in Portugal, which was the final event of the series of local events, foreseen in the framework of the project.

School students from 3 classes attended the online event.

Later on, all participants were encouraged to attended a discussion on the importance of intercultural competences, ways to develop them and methods to overcome intercultural shock.
