CrossCulture Programme

The CrossCulture Programme (CCP) enables professionals and committed volunteers to think outside of the cultural box.

Each year around 55 Fellowship recipients from host organisations in Germany or in one of the over 40 partner countries gain experience in intercultural networks. Through occupational stays abroad, the programme enables and promotes actors from the cultural, educational, human rights, sustainability, scientific, and media sector to work together. The goal of the CrossCulture Programme is to strengthen lasting civil society networks between Germany and countries across the globe. The programme was launched in 2005 and now counts more than 1.100 alumni to its ever-growing network.

Three people, two men and one woman, can be seen at a table. They seem to be working on something together. In the background there are many presentation cards and notes on a whiteboard, as well as on the table. They are workshop participants of the ifa CrossCulture Programme Synergy.
