Living within diversities. Cultures and new complexities. An international conference by Fondazione Intercultura. Florence, April 4-6, 2024

At a time of globalisation and of multiple cross-cultural influences how can we learn to communicate in an effective and culturally sensitive way in our complex societies? Which competencies are required? How can we face and cope with cultural uncertainty?Are we moving towards a “liquid” concept of culture? How can young people be educated to cope with so many intertwined cultural differences within a complex society?To answer these questions, join a conference organised by Fondazione Intercultura in the beautiful city of Florence from April 4 to 6, 2024.
Coffee with MG: Diversity in a Third Culture Life

Coffee with MG: Diversity in a Third Culture Life

What is it like living in a country which is distinctly different from that of your parents?How diverse is this kind of living?In theoretical parlance, the individuals who live through this diversity are called third culture kids (TCK) or third culture individuals (TCI). They live in a different environment during a significant part of their child development years.They are typically exposed to a greater volume and variety of cultural influences than those who grow up in one cultural setting. The first culture of such individuals refers to the culture of the country from which their parents originated, the second culture refers to the culture in which the family currently resides, and the third culture refers to the distinct culture these individuals develop, which is generally a fusion of these cultures, -  and at times third culture individuals share no connection to the first two cultures.
