SDCC participates in new Grundtvig Learning Partnership "WUW. Women Understanding Women", 2010-2012.
This project aims to bring together women from across Europe and provide them with a safe and non-judgmental space in which to share their backgrounds, cultures, traditions, values, aspirations and fears. It will foster a sense of community undiminished by distance or language and an opportunity for free and open dialogue and discussion, particularly around issues that remain guarded and unmentionable in some cultures. Methodology will include non-verbal, in order that women from all partner institutions can join together in common themes.
