Cross-cultural engagement: knowing what you don't know

Andrew discusses engagement as a cross-cultural issue in order to get people to think about what is involved when the cultural context is unfamiliar.  Andrew will use examples of Bendigo and Melbourne students working in urban and regional planning in Sri Lanka to explore how we can meaningfully engage in another cultural setting.

Using examples from urban and regional planning in Sri Lanka, Andrew explores what issues are 'universal' and which are contingent on local needs, knowledge and experience.
