BODI project: cultural diversity, body, gender and health in early childhood education

The BODI project aims to contribute to the development of teachers’ competences for an understanding of cultural differences in early childhood education. It contributes to involve parents with different cultural backgrounds and to engage them in dialogue about sensitive issues such as cultural differences, gender, body and health. Furthermore the project aims to improve schools’ capacity to address cultural diversity for a better inclusion of children and parents in our intercultural society. The partners of the project are: Cyprus Pedagogical Institute (Cyprus), Kindervilla (Austria), La Xixa Teatre (Spain) and CESIE (Italy) and they are coordinated by Elan Interculturel (France) in their efforts to approach intercultural interactions in early childhood education.
