UNESCO Invites You to Share Your Culture with Korean Students

by UNESCO CCAP, 18/03/2010

At no other time in the history of the world has there been such a need for international co-operation. As technology brings people closer together day-by-day, cooperation is becoming essential to peaceful human co-existence. Recognising the importance of mutual understanding among different people, the Cross-Cultural Awareness Programme (CCAP), organised by the Korean National Commission for UNESCO and supported by the Ministry of Education & Human Resources Development, has been introducing a diversity of cultures from around the world to the Korean youth since 1998. CCAP is designed to be a participatory process that augments education for international understanding in schools nationwide and promotes a culture of tolerance and mutual respect.

CCAP Main Activities:
- Regular Classes are the central activity of the CCAP. In panerai replica this programme, foreign residents in Korea are invited to share their culture with Korean youths. They are typically asked to visit schools as a Cultural Exchange Volunteer (CEV) and present their own culture to the Korean students, in collaboration with a Korean Interpretation Voluntee (KIV). Anyone, regardless of age, sex, religion or country of origin, can participate in the programme as a volunteer. By involving themselves in this unique and exciting endeavour, all participants are able to deepen their understanding of each other and broaden their commitment to a culture of tolerance and mutual respect.

- Caravans (incude homestays and cultural classes) provide opportunities to schools that, due to their geographical location, do not have regular contacts with foreign cultures. The selected school will receive our caravan team composed of CEVs, KIVs and CCAP staff members, who will conduct two classes during the weekend.

- Workshops are planned to evaluate CCAP activities and to learn the key themes to better conduct CCAP classes. They consist of lectures, discussions and get-togethers where participants can foster friendship wile learning about different cultures. There will also be get-togethers of all the involved parties, including volunteers, schools, programme staff, etc.

- Orientation sessions for CEVs, KIVs and school teachers will be held to provide information and assistance to newcomers and where new and experienced programme participants can share information and ideas. A month orientation is held for CEVs and KIVs, and for school teachers, there's a session in March.

- Testimonial Dinner at the end of the years gives UNESCO the opportunity to formally expresse its gratitude to particpating CEVs, KIVs and schools. Participants will each receive a certificate.
