This exercise creates a frame for discussions about the tendency of our world to be a global space for different cultures, habits and life styles. The background idea is to remark the hidden values promoted by every single culture or some characteristics associated to different nations.


The main objective is to help participants in analyzing and raising their awareness about the global culture in which we live our lives.


- poster (see the hand out) multiplied

- sheet of paper, A3 size

- markers


  1. Divide participants in 3 or 4 smaller groups to allow quality discussions among the participants. Distribute copies of the poster to be used as a support for the discussions.
  2. Ask participants to analyse the statements listed on the poster from the point of view of the cultural roots which influence our perspectives. After discussing in these groups, you can conduct a final debate with the entire group of participants.
  3. Invite participants to reflect individually and prepare some new posters with personal statements related to the global cultural setting of our lives. Suggest the use of specific contexts for this reason, such as a sport event, an exhibition, a school event etc.


  • How was the exercise? How did it feel to discuss the topics?
  • Did you reach the topic of cultures, values?
  • What can we learn from this example?
