Brussels, 23 January 2024

In an era where cultural diversity is both a reality and a necessity, the launch of the P.IR.A.M.iD project (2023-1-ES01-KA220-VET-000157060) on January 22-23 marks a significant step in promoting intercultural awareness and skills in the vocational education and training (VET) sector, particularly in tourism. This initiative, falling under the umbrella of the acclaimed Erasmus+ programme, represents a collaborative effort to enhance the global competencies of today’s workforce.

P.IR.A.M.iD, standing for Path for Intercultural Awareness, Measurement, and Development, focuses on three primary objectives:

  • Promoting intercultural skills: In an increasingly interconnected world, the ability to navigate and appreciate cultural differences is paramount, especially in the tourism sector, which thrives on global interaction.
  • Strengthening internationalization in education and business: by integrating international perspectives into educational and business practices, P.IR.A.M.iD aims to foster a more globally aware and competent workforce.
  • Providing tools for multicultural management: The project seeks to equip VET learners, educators, and tourism companies with practical, effective tools to manage and thrive in multicultural environments.

This ambitious project is being implemented by a consortium of diverse and experienced organizations: Tribeka Training Lab SLU, Elidea Psicologi Associati, garagErasmus ASBL, Balgarska Stopanska Kamara (Bulgarian Industrial Association, Agenzia Regionale LAB.

As we embark on this transformative journey, the P.IR.A.M.iD project promises to be a beacon of change, nurturing more inclusive, culturally sensitive educational and tourism environments. This initiative not only aims to raise awareness but also to deliver tangible, applicable skills that align with the demands of our diverse world.

PIRAMID is co-funded by the Erasmus+ program.
