As part of Wrocław City Council’s intercultural dialogue scheme, a cultural-awareness lesson program will be launched in the city’s public schools.
The lessons were one of the promises Wrocław’s President made in his election campaign last year.
It is hoped that the scheme will make school pupils and the wider community more aware of the various ethnic groups living in Wrocław. Those put in charge of implementing the lessons also hope they will motivate more people to park part in the future activities of the intercultural dialogue program.
Some of the lessons will involve volunteers from various cultures doing a presentation about their homeland.
According to Dorota Feliks of Wrocław’s Center for Social Development, the classes will begin at the end of March or the start of April.
Wrocław Vice-President Renata Granowska has also suggested that the city will cooperate with NGOs who have already conducted workshops on anti-discrimination, such as Wropenup.
