International Youth Summer School on “Discover each other through intercultural dialogue"


To promote the solidarity between different nationalities and make the slogan “Let’s develop intercultural dialogue” real, it is very important to encourage young generation of scholars and researchers to ideas on integration, tolerance, and ecology based development and mutual learning and understanding.
Also it is highly important to promote the values of mutual respect and understanding between the young people from different cultures, foster intercultural dialogue and find the common grounds for feeling united.
In this reason, The IISNC (International Institute for the Study of Nomadic Civilizations) sees the utmost need to bring the youth together and organize an international youth summer school “Let’s develop intercultural dialogue!”
In this summer school 30 youth researchers of multi-disciplinary branches of the science /history, archaeology, linguistics, economy, IT, natural sciences etc/ from different countries gather in order to:
•Promote intercultural dialogue and understanding
•Introduce with nomadic history, culture and husbandry
•Attend lectures at leading scholars and professors on nomadic civilization and Mongol studies
•Exchange the knowledge, thoughts and experiences on nomadic civilization development trends and Mongol studies between the participants
•Articulate and implement proposals for further cooperation
•Make a research paper at the international conference etc
During the project, interaction is also planned with nomads-herders in Khar-Khorin sum of the Uvurkhangai aimag, Mongolia and introducing with archaeological excavation survey on early nomadic civilization monuments such as tomb, burial sites and other sacral sites in the territory of Mongolia. Also they will visit the ancient monastery of Buddhism in Erdenzuu, Uvurkhangai aimag and see interreligious communication among Mongolians.
During this summer school participants will see performances of the folk art of the Mongolians and Naadam Festival (three manly games) etc.
We expect that we would create a network of researchers from different countries, who would receive necessary knowledge on nomadic civilization studies and Mongol studies, intercultural experiences on relationship between East and West, contacts, ideas and motivation for further researches as a result of this project.
Real outcome of this summer school will be a paper-book of participants.
