The idea: Make anyone feel as “foreigner” at any time!
That was the idea. Facilitator of intercultural training work with exercises and games that focus mostly on conflicts and misunderstandings between different cultures. By contrast, SEE IT! DO IT! FEEL IT!® creates unique intercultural scenarios with an inclusive approach. It enables intercultural learning free of stereotyping.
Research & Development
Visual Studies (University of Vienna)
Innovation fundings (FFG, aws)
SEE IT! DO IT! FEEL IT!® was developed together with the Visual Studies of the University of Vienna. The idea was to solve the dilemma of stereotyping in intercultural training through visuals that elicit learnings on different levels. The research was needed, so we got innovation fundings from the Austrian government (FFG, aws).
Being an outsider
SEE IT! DO IT! FEEL IT!® works with visual cards that enable irritations on an emotional level – make anyone feel as a “foreigner” or “outsider” in a neutral setting.
without prejudices and stereotypes
Trainers are faced with the dilemma of stereotyping and the simultaneous avoidance of generalization during exercises and training. SEE IT! DO IT! FEEL IT!® solves this dilemma and enables the transformation of intercultural theories into real life.

Get Theory Into Practice
