Mission Statement

Cross Cultures is firmly convinced that JOYFUL GAMES is the best learning tool for stimulating social changes and a unique tool for facilitating bridging and bonding - communication and collaboration - between children and adults living in divided communities.

Correspondingly Cross Cultures is building our activities on our specific "fun-football-concept" that are caracterized by keywords like "dialogue", "fun games", "creativity", "child centred pedagogic", "bottom-up", "equality", "communities" and "voluntarism".

Climate Change

Things Talk is a worldwide climate change educational program for children between 10-12 years old.
