. learning by doing

Conventional education focuses on knowledge and sometimes on skills. However, at CISV we believe that the most effective learning takes place when we have engaging first-hand experiences.

As a result, our educational approach uses experiential methods to develop intercultural competence. This requires a focus on:

  • Developing awareness
  • Fostering positive attitudes
  • Increasing skills
  • Acquiring knowledge
