The manual about nationality and culture in international exchange projects “Be your country?!” is the outcome of the seminar „Be your country?! Deconstructing culture in (international) youth work and non-formal education“ organised online from 3-9 December 2021 by Service Civil International Österreich.

In this seminar, youth workers and staff from volunteering organisations around Europe were looking at what we do, when we culturalise our non-formal education programs, our energisers, our support and training structures and our free time activities. With this Manual SCI and its partners aim to exchange and create a set of alternative approaches that instead of emphasising the differences put the spotlight on what makes us all human.

The publication was edited by Sima* Jakob and Thomas Schallhart, who facilitated the seminar.
