From January 16‒27, 2017, InterCultur (the non-profit subsidiary of AFS Germany) and Jacobs University are again offering the Winter Academy on Intercultural Competence in Bremen, Germany. The Winter Academy on Intercultural Competence will not only impart theoretical frameworks regarding intercultural learning, but also practical competencies and knowledge, to enable participants to work as intercultural trainers themselves in the future.
Therefore, all courses will include workshop sessions with complementary theoretical and practical content offered by academic staff and trainers which are experts with large experience in international environments. This collaboration will bridge the gap between theory and practice and will ensure the best training results.

The Winter Academy offers a great opportunity for AFS volunteers and staff who are involved in (intercultural) training activities in their organisation.
