Increasing Respect and Tolerance through Intercultural Education and Experience
The ongoing project Increasing Respect and Tolerance through Intercultural Education and Experience emphasizes that Prague is a city with a long tradition of multicultural co-existence of people with various national, cultural and sexual identities. An educational programme for students of Prague´s secondary schools was developed. The programme, consisting of workshops workshops and excursions, aims to provide students with historical context of key moments of Prague´s (as well as Czech) modern history such as the Nazi occupation, the era and fall of the socialist regime, current refugee crisis etc. and its impact on demographical chase as well as on perception of national minorities and forejgners by majority population. In addition to this, students work on their own projects. These could be research activities or organizing events for the local community.
