COVID MEASURES

Due to the uncertainties of the COVID-19 crisis we decided to cancel the workshop 7/8 September 2020 in Budapest and instead deliver the Teach-the-Teachers workshop ‘Complex Intercultural Communication’ in a different format:

  • - In 6 online modules of 60-90 minutes, monthly from January
  • – June 2021, different topics will be addressed.
  • - Followed by a face-to-face workshop combined with the final conference of the project (27/28 of August 2021) if possible concerning COVID-19 regulations.

You can register for the online courses on our "events" page!
