Its main goal is to join efforts of teachers from different regions of Ukraine aimed at the development of intercultural education, inter-regional dialogue between educational institutions.

After a detailed presentation of the course implementation experience in Crimea and Odessa region, of the international experience, particularly in Moldova and Kyrgyzstan, participants discussed the real needs of each target region and next steps to adapt the pilot program course.

The main result of this two days long intensive seminar is the accumulated plan for the next three years of the course adaptation to conditions of each region, including adaptation of programs, textbooks and other teaching aids for further implementation by identifying pilot educational institutions, training of educators, and the introduction of psychological monitoring of the implementation of the experiment.
