East and West Relations Bridging
What can be done to improve East and West Bridges? What’s the role of interculturalists in East and West Bridging Building Capacity? How can we create training opportunity for interculturalists, thus to develop their East and West sensitivity, and consequently the knowledge and competence that can be for them useful to increase East and West reciprocal worldview’s understanding, and to forge intercultural dialogue and cooperation?
These were the questions that inspired the organization of East & west Conference, that for the first time put together SIETAR Russia and SIETAR Europa members, and that took place from 26th to 28th of October 2018 at the Higher School of Economics (HSE) in Puskin, Russia (nearby St. Petersburg).
\East & West 2018 event intended to create a cross-boarders learning space, where SIETAR members, from the fresh establish SIETAR Russia, and from the old established SIETAR Europa members, could meet openly and learn from each other, from each other’s culture, and from each other’s cultural perspectives. And this is what happened.
