Training of Trainers for Intercultural Dialogue


A training course has been organized as part of the "EU-Turkey Intercultural Dialogue" programme, conducted by Yunus Emre Institute and co-financed by the European Union (EU) and the Republic of Turkey.

The EU-Turkey Intercultural Dialogue programme seeks to establish a strong dialogue between Europe and different parts of Turkey through four major cultural projects and hundreds of activities undertaken under these projects, and one of its major stages was to take intercultural dialogue to the very center of the Yunus Emre Institute's network abroad.

To this end, a training course was held between March 2 and 6, 2020 with the attendance of the Institute's officials in Ankara as well as directors of Yunus Emre Institute's branches in Berlin, Cologne, Vienna, Amsterdam, London, Pristina, Belgrade and Budapest.

The participants had a chance to study a number of topics including the international role of identity in establishing cultural identity and intercultural dialogue and strengthening international dialogue trough activities. The participants were issued their training certificates by Institute President Prof. Dr. Şeref Ateş. 

The Institute will organize similar training courses for its staff working at different countries as part of the Intercultural Dialogue programme.
