2019 has been a year full of activities for Odyssée. For example, we launched our project “Bordeaux Citoyenne du Monde” (Bordeaux, Citizen of the World) with the support of the Prix de l’Initiative 2018 (2018 Initiative Awards) awarded by Bordeaux’s Town Hall. The idea behind this activity is to discover the city of Bordeaux with an intercultural and international approach.

In 2019 we continued to organise language, culture and theme-based study stays. In January, we welcomed a class of Italian students for a language and culture stay. In June, a groupe of Italian high-school students came to Bordeaux to learn about the battle against violence in sport and the security of the sports equipments and events in Bordeaux.

In terms of our cultural and intercultural activities, Odyssée has organised many activities with young locals and Europeans alike: they participated in mosaics of the languages in Bordeaux, intercultural and interactive rallies, or even in the quiz about end of year celebrations around the world.

  • Escape Your Stereotypes: project we have been working on since September 2019 in parternship with Leeds Trinity University in the UK and Kuryboslab in Lithuania in order to prepare a method to create educational Escape Games focused on intercultural learning and combatting prejudice. The project will then lead to the creation of an Escape Game by the partnership. Image may contain: 6 people, people smiling, people standing

In short, last year Odyssée was hard at work developing interculturality in Bordeaux. Here’s to a 2020 full of activities, culture and diversity!
