Workshop storytelling (ENG)

Walking the global citizen path starts with YOUR story


In this workshop you’ll learn how to use storytelling as an engagement tool, why to use it, when and what are the important elements to keep in mind. The workshop will include some exercises and will be a quick intro to the topic of storytelling.

In this keynote, Sobhi Khatib will share some parts of his story and invites you to think about where it can relate to your story as well. Together, we explore the power of connecting the personal to the general, and the local to the international. This will include some information (and of course stories) on intercultural communications, inclusion, sense of belonging, connecting skills and education.

Concepts like Internationalization and global citizenship can be too far to connect to. How does it relate to you? Why should it be of an importance to you? What can we do to humanize those big concepts and make them ours?
