Welcome Dear Visitor!
You are now at the online educational platform of the IRIS project dedicated to the exploration of intimacy, relationships, interculturality in the lives of young people and youth workers. Do these words seem abstract to you? In fact, they refer to quite ordinary experiences:
- A young man is shocked when he sees women initiating flirt for the first time in another country. He wonders whether this behaviour is cultural or personal.
- A Senegalese student is worried because he did not execute properly the French greeting ritual of kissing on the cheek
- A young man participant in a training offers a gift to a female youth worker, she’s wondering whether or not she should accept it, and what would be the meaning of accepting or declining.
