Just before the winter break, a group of our lecturers and students from the Intercultural Communication programme visited the First Grammar School in Kędzierzyn-Koźle.
The workshop, entitled "In your/their eyes", was organised at the initiative of the Proxy for Equal Treatment at the University of Opole, Dr Marzanna Pogorzelska, and conducted by Dr Michał Wanke. Both the lecturer and our students, who come from Cameroon, Nigeria and Turkey, had an excellent contact with young people, which made the workshop, based on direct contact with representatives of other cultures, a real lesson of active acceptance.
Both sides - Polish youth and foreign students were interested in each other, open and willing to share their experiences.
It was probably not the last visit to this school - all the people taking part in the event: lecturers, teachers, students and secondary school students declared their readiness for next such meetings.
