Toolbox-Recommendations-For school trip providers and programme makers

Specialised agencies that organise educational school trips as well as other parties (teacher etc.) that are getting involved in the drafting of related programmes are strongly recommended to:

  • Include gaming/quiz session on exchange programs.
  • Give a role to the guests. Perceive them not only as attendant but co-creators (active involvement in activities).
  • Allow comparisons to be made between the two groups (hosts and guests).
  • Try to avoid lengthy presentations.
  • Provide independence and engage students in program drafting and choice of activities.
  • Give space and time for free discussions between students when programming (that is very important for tacking any possible stereotypes from both sides).
  • Virtual sessions (when used) should be considered as complementary to physical activities and not as a replacement.
