Debate co-organized by Inter Alia, Civic Action Meeting Point and Arcadia University Athens
6 February, 2014 @ Arcadia Study Abroad – Greece
On the 6th of February, Inter Alia along with the Arcadia University Athens organised the “Bridging Buildings – Connecting Continents” event. The event was an attempt to discover and discuss the existing similarities and differences between the EU and USA as (supra)national structures. Are the features in common for the youth on both sides of the Atlantic more than their distinctive qualities? How about generalizations? Can we avoid them in our endeavor against stereotyping? The main aim of this meeting was the interaction between EU (Greek, mainly) and non-EU (US) students on the certain topic. Increasing intercultural awareness and understanding along with identification of false perceptions and stereotypes constituted the basic objectives of the program, which the organisers attempted to tackle through non-formal methods of education, interactive dialogue and game.
