Our caravan moves on! On Wednesday the 27th of March, we invite interested ZU students of all programmes to join our kick-off event for our TSRG Brazil. At this event we will announce detailed information about the fieldtrip to Brazil, the research project and participation possibilities.
In our Uganda fieldtrip we will visit the Hope Development Initiative in Kampala, in their rural communities and various of its stakeholders. We will conduct many interesting interviews to advance the individual research projects of the group members that will together answer our overarching question about transculturality and the Hope Development Initiative.
The Transcultural Caravan is initiated and executed by
»There can be no culture except where there is some consensus. Consensus is a matter of understanding. It is transmitted through communication, through example and through participation in a common life.«
