We Believe

GLOBAL Experience Is Important

The UNESCO World Report “Investing in Cultural Diversity and Intercultural Dialogue” points out how crucial it is to acquire cultural literacy to understand cultures in their creative diversity.

“This is a new kind of literacy, on a par with the importance of reading and writing skills or numeracy: cultural literacy has become the lifeline for today’s world, a fundamental resource for harnessing the multiple venues education can take (from family and tradition to the media, both old and new, and to informal groups and activities) and an indispensible tool for transcending the ‘clash of ignorances.’ It can be seen as part of a broad toolkit of worldviews, attitudes and competences that young people acquire for their lifelong journey” (UNESCO, 2009, p. 118).
