Education in benevolence, intercultural mediation

Recognize and welcome what the “humanities” of the worlds around us teach us.

The key to caring in an open world is knowing how to open up to others. Knowing how to let ourselves be welcomed, enriched by others. The people that we are actually owe much more to humanity in its cultural plurality than we realize. “Interculturality” is a reality that our respective chauvinism prevents us from calmly accepting. We are not only the children of a nation, but the fruits of wisdom nourished by the confluences of universal genius. The cultural banquet takes place around a round table that opens us up to sharing, not only our know-how, but above all our “savoir-être”. We are not alone and never have been.


It is about recognizing what we have within us that is universal. Recognize and welcome what the “humanities” of the worlds around us can teach us to live better together and strengthen our HUMANITY.
