Culture Lab Lausanne
More than 43% of the population in the Lausanne region is of a foreign origin. This huge cultural diversity in one city makes it difficult sometimes for its residents to feel like part of one community. While traditional language schools and integration programs try to tackle this problem, it does not offer enough interaction between foreign and local population. Culture Lab Lausanne is an ecosystem of co-learning space, services and people that brings together Lausanne’s diverse population through communicative language teaching and intercultural exchange. It is aimed to help Lausanne residents who want to communicate better in French or English through engaging teaching and language exchange within the community. We build the intercultural community of learners and teachers through providing the space and platform for them to meet and interact as well as engaging and supporting them in this process through events and resources at our co-learning space.
