partner organizations

Interkulturelles Netzwerk e.V is a non-profit organisation and, since 1996, organises international, intercultural exchanges with various partners – European and otherwise – in Germany and abroad, thereby facilitating direct dialogue between persons from different cultures. Their aim is to promote intercultural leaning and, by doing so, to contribute to a better mutual understanding.

In the field of training and education, Interkulturelles Netzwerk e.V. mostly offers international cycles of basic training in intercultural exchanges facilitation, as well as language animation. Intercultural exchanges for children and youth are also a key point of our NGO’s work.

Our team’s youth leaders and interpreters have specific intercultural and linguistic skills. In addition to their educational training on a national level, they have been certified by the French-German Youth Office (FGYO) for bi- or tri-national youth exchanges and/or language animation.

The association Interkulturelles Netzwerk is represented in various working groups on a European level regarding the certification of skills related to the pedagogy of intercultural exchanges’ and, every year, organises a partner fair which brings together around forty organisations from the European Union, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe as well as several countries from around the Mediterranean.

Furthermore, interkulturelles Netzwerk e.V. acts as a centralising organisation for the French-German Youth Office and for the French-Polish Youth Office, and in this respect supports smaller organisations in Germany with the designing, funding, implementation, and evaluation of intercultural exchanges.

All the organisation’s activities as well as their current programme are available at www.interkulturelles-netzwerk.de.

L’Union Peuple et Culture est un mouvement d’éducation populaire, fondé en 1945 par des hommes et des femmes descendus des plateaux du Vercors. Ils voulaient « rendre la culture au peuple et le peuple à la culture ». Peuple et Culture mène depuis 70 ans un même combat : la lutte contre les inégalités culturelles et pour le droit au savoir tout au long de la vie.

Ses priorités actuelles sont de promouvoir l’éducation du citoyen par l’autoformation, de s’engager dans le développement d’une économie solidaire et de promouvoir la démocratie. Le secteur international a pour but de coordonner le réseau dans ce domaine et d’organiser des échanges et formations interculturelles.

A partir d’un large réseau humain de plusieurs générations, Peuple et Culture développe aujourd’hui des actions favorisant l’éducation critique, l’ouverture culturelle et interculturelle, la transmission des savoirs, la recherche de l’autonomie, le goût de l’expression et de l’action collective, de la créativité et du vivre-ensemble. Guidé par l’esprit de son manifeste, Peuple et Culture travaille à l’émancipation de toutes et tous par la culture.

L’Union nationale rassemble aujourd’hui une quinzaine d’associations – dont le réseau national Accueil Paysan – qui y adhèrent directement et sont réparties sur l’ensemble du territoire national. Peuple et Culture dispose d’un important réseaux de partenaires, dans plus de trente pays.  Education, formation, action culturelle, accompagnement de projets, développement de la citoyenneté, échanges internationaux, trouvent dans chaque association Peuple et Culture une forme particulière et une résonance spécifique.
