Every experience, every human interaction, every journey near or far, is a way to discover the world and other people, experience diversity, value differences, learn and grow.
Through this contest we want to collect the faces, the smiles, the looks of the people who taught us something significant, meaningful or particular in life: it could have been during one of our travels, in a meeting, in our daily life, in a peculiar situation with our family, at work, with friends.
It can be a saying, a teaching, a culinary habit or a recipe, a way of greeting, a behaviour or a habit, a value, the knowledge of a fruit or a flower, a story from one’s past. People who taught us a new way of being in the world, looking at the sky, living work, nurturing a passion, understanding nature, relating with others, walking barefoot or dancing: the world talks to us and teaches us every day in the most different ways.
Through the activities we carry out every day, we at ICEI know that enhancing the enormous wealth of knowledge, experiences and cultures of our planet is an invaluable resource for building a fair, supportive, inclusive and sustainable world. Being active in international cooperation means, for us, giving life to a reciprocal and circular exchange of knowledge with people from all the countries we meet every day. We are convinced that a local solution can virtuously transform itself into a global model and vice versa. Every single knowledge enriches the collective cultural baggage, in all directions.
