CrossCulture Programme 2020

The CrossCulture Programme (CCP) enables professionals and committed volunteers to think outside of the cultural box. Each year around 80 fellowship recipients from host organisations in Germany or in one of the over 35 partner countries gain experience in intercultural networks. 

When:
2019
Where:
Germany

Around 80 professionals and committed volunteers from over 35 countries get a chance to do a Fellowship with the CrossCulture Programme each year. During two to three months of practical training in host organisations in Germany or in CCP partner countries, participants deepen their expertise and acquire intercultural skills. In turn, the host organisations benefit from the expertise, regional knowledge and networks of the CCP fellows.
