This toolkit is designed to arm teachers with the relevant skills, didactical tools and practices tools that will enable intercultural communications and Neighbourness in multicultural classrooms (learning environment). Intercultural competence as defined by Deardorff (2006) is “the ability to communicate effectively and appropriately in intercultural situations based on one’s intercultural knowledge, skills, and attitudes”. Neighbourness refers to the ability for a group of people from different cultural, social and economic backgrounds to coexist, learn together and assist each other devoid of culturally, social or economical driven bias (Nuutinen, 2017). In the Welearn project Neighbourness is theorised as the possession and expression of skills, knowledge and attitudes on intercultural competence (intercultural communications inclusive), global citizenship, and neighbourliness (Nuutinen, 2017)
