“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page of it.“
Augustin d’Hippone (354 – 430)
Roman philosopher, theologian and bishop.
Traveling offers an opportunity to discover places and also to meet other people and their culture(s). That is what this area of activity of t.i.c Trad is all about.
Intercultural group interpreting
This deals with the organisation and accompaniment of international youth exchange programmes, especially within the framework of the Franco-German Youth Office (FGYO). This binational institution was created in 1962 as part of the Franco-German Friendship Treaty (Elysée Treaty) and has since established itself as a reference organisation for intercultural and linguistic programmes and research.
The programmes Birthe looks after are primarily aimed at young people in vocational training who get to know the partner country from a socio-economic point of view and meet young people of the same age and from the same profession. The young people are encouraged to approach each other using intercultural communication methods and to become aware of their own cultural identity.
