The inter cultural team consists of profiles, both different and complementary, that have developed several learning paths in multiple languages, created resources, facilitated and adapted activities according to the needs of participants.

This team has focused on knowledge co-construction, peer review, exchange and sharing on forums. Therefore, a community was able to evolve around the device and perpetuate the same spirit in the creation of new projects.
