Danube University, Krems, and Youth Town, Copenhagen, gave intercultural and pedagogical input and supported the evaluation, as well as the international conference in May 2014. The conference was an opportunity for practitioners and academics to share experiences and results on an interdisciplinary level, and to match theory and practice of experiential intercultural learning.

Danish and Austrian teachers had the possibility to share their experiences and to develop learning formats in different subjects, using topics from the culture and countries of the visiting groups – before, during and after the visit. The teachers communicated through the Facebook group “Danaustria”.
