The tool is a description for an imaginary walk throgh a park where people are descibed but no specific hint at intercultual backgrounds are given. After having been guided through the walk the learner is supposed to reflect if any of the people in the park have a diverse cultural background and if which aspects can be identified as being interculturally diverse.
The tool can be used in any session (small and large groups) and in any professional setting. It is a short intervention- about 5 min for the experience and maybe 30 min for the reflection.
