Une Terre Culturelle, what for?
Une Terre Culturelle is a project of sustainable human development based on reciprocal and continuous intercultural learning. The association develops projects and actions around the implementation of intercultural exchanges in direct link with local realities. These actions address various contemporary and interdependent themes such as education, social inclusion and ecology. These actions aim to develop the intercultural sensitivity of the public. The participants in our projects come from a wide social mix and are often persons with fewer opportunities for mobility.
Each participant, whether young with fewer opportunities for mobility, social worker, or professional in other fields, is thought of as an actor and actress in the society in which they evolve. By meeting each other, these people from a broad social mix trigger a process of civic growth, openness, and daily commitment.
All the actions of Une Terre Culturelle are rooted in social and local entrepreneurship. Mobility and encounters as a tool for development allow us to go beyond prejudice and help people discover other realities while initiating reflection on the links between each of them. By implementing these education for citizenship actions, Une Terre Culturelle contributes to the understanding of the interdependencies between environmental, social, economic, and cultural issues in our societies. This step is part of the process of learning about otherness and the emergence of a real tool for local and international solidarity.
