Building and Crossing Bridges / Belgium

25 July 2019

13-25 July 2019

We live in a polarised and multicultural world which increasingly lacks dialogue among this diversity within groups. The overall goal of the UWC short course Belgium 2019 is to provide a platform that increases multicultural understanding among all participants.

Over the 14 days, the 50 participants aged 15 to 19 will take part in a variety of workshops, physical and mental exercises, discussions, creative activities, and games aimed at:                    

  • Creating a diverse multicultural group that celebrates difference       
  • Building safe spaces based on the principle of mutual respect            
  • Leading participants to social responsibility                        
  • Designing a program that challenges participants in every possible way                      
  • Helping participants realise their potential

Building and crossing bridges will serve as a metaphor throughout the short course. The course will allow participants from different cultural, socio-economic, religious, and ethnic backgrounds to share their visions of the world, explore different views, and build ‘bridges’ with each other. The programme aims to provide a life-changing experience that makes each participant a full member of the UWC movement.
