INTERNATIONAL CULTURAL PASSPORT
Last month, together with my colleague Mentor Kovaci from Albania and my collaborator Swapnil Vairagade from India, I initiated the International Cultural Passport project. After the discussions I had with my partners, we established the project objectives and the implementation plan.
Of course, many of my friends were delighted with the idea of becoming partners in an international project. So, an idea that until yesterday was just a dream now has become a reality!
On February 20, I organized an online session within the project, and the theme was "Let's tell a story about my country". In this session we were able to travel virtually to Georgia,and to discover how beautiful country it is, with the help of our partner Mari Kharitonashvili and her wonderful students. After that Georgia Maneta invited us to visit the beautiful Greece, and Taruna Kapoor introduced us to the colorful world of India. We finally reached the beautiful lands of Palestine, with the help of our partners Shawqia Hawawre, ILham Younis Rabaya and Munther Mohammad Zyoud.
56 people, teachers and students from the partner countries were present in this meeting. Everyone was delighted by the cultural and social diversity, from one country to another. We all learned new things and visited 4 countries with just one click.
It is nice that teachers and students from across the world become real ambassadors of tourist values.
