Poster session 117

Encompassing silenced voices: intercultural competence for a sustainable planet

  • Wednesday 25 Sept
  • Hall 3, Level 0, Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre

Cultural humility, perspective-taking, cultural adaptation, reciprocity, mindfulness, empathy, solidarity across difference and diversity, effective and appropriate behaviour – these are the concepts that inspire and guide us as intercultural educators. Yet how committed are we to upholding such values compared to other culturally distinct life forms and vibrant living habitats? This poster argues that no creature on Earth would ever consider Homo sapiens interculturally competent, so why do we?
