Building Intercultural Competences: Local Debates in Malta

In July 2020 the partners from Cross Culture International Foundation (CCIF Malta) took the opportunity to organise an event for limited number of participants and hosted the first local debate in the framework of the project.

The event was mainly focused on how important intercultural competences nowadays are, as well as how to gain intercultural experience in a safe way and prevent becoming a victim of human trafficking.

Due to the limitations for organising meetings in person, the partners have organised a second local online debate in September in order to reach the desired number of participants.
