A Seminar on Intercultural Communication in Romania
Cluj-Napoca, 17-19. September, 2010

Project holder: Balkans let´s get up!
Partner: Centrul Cultural German Cluj-Napoca

Romania offers home to eighteen officially registered ethnic groups among which the Hunga-
rians, making out 6.6 % of Romania`s inhabitants, are the most represented. This huge num-
ber of different ethnic groups enriches the country and its inhabitants with the chance of re-
cognizing a multitude of perspectives that are created through cultural diversity. The living-to-
gether of various groups of people speaking different languages, having their own scale of
values, traditions and expectations can generate easily prejudices, lack of interaction and fi-
nally conflicts.

If you recognized that these issues are present in our society and you want to discuss about
them with other young people and search for possible solutions in a relaxed and inspiring at-
mosphere, you have now the unique chance to do it!

The project “Click it and fix it” invites you to attend a dynamic and creative seminar which
deals with the intercultural communication between the Romanian community and the Hun-
garian minority. During the seminar we will try to find out where the roots of the existing pre-
judices and conflicts are and what we can do as individual citizens in order to combat them.
The participants will represent in an equal number both sides: the Romanian and the Hun-
garian and the working language will be English. Your contribution is extremely important
because the main topic of the seminar is the cohabitation of Romanians and Hungarians
which is best reflected in personal experiences and you have the power to make a change!

If you feel concerned by the Romanian- Hungarian (non?)communication or you want to learn more about it, please do not hesitate just participate!!!

Who can apply?

Any high school student between the age of 16-19 years able to work in English is highly

  1. Thank you. You would have gotten a quekcir response but for some reason, I was not being notified of my replies at my email address. I will be checking in with the blog daily and January 1st marks the official beginning of this blog. There will be an article on Al Bielek and David Anderson by tomorrow.
