After working hard on our group projects seperately in the afternoon, we gathered and presented some snippets of what each Urban Safari was going to be like. After that it was time to come together and learn more about each other.
We had a lot of time to learn about each other individually. So this evening it was the perfect moment to learn about all cultures. We organized an intercultural evening!
Belgium started of with some snacks and showed the group some cultural food and drinks. After them the Netherlands started with a quiz testing the groups knowledge about the Dutch society and taught everyone about the diversity living in the country. The participants with roots in Ghana, Morocco and Surinam also shares some info about how their communities ended up in the Netherlands and shared some typical aspects of their cultures. The Portuguese gave us a lot of treats from their country and after checked to see how much of the group was actually Portuguese from the inside. The last group comes from Tenerife and they taught us about Spain by bringing not only food and drinks but actual pieces of their nature like different types of sand.
And to finish this special evening we enjoyed the night with the music, food and other things we brought.
