Each piece in place, a work of art,

A mosaic made with love and heart,

No piece too small, no color too bright,

Each one important, a vital part of sight.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts,

A masterpiece created by many hearts,

In unity and harmony, we stand,

Each piece unique, yet part of a grand plan.

So be proud of your place in the mosaic of life,

Embrace your role, your part in the strife,

For without you, the picture is not complete,

So shine your light, and let your colors meet.

Acceptance. That feelings of being one's self without the fear of being discriminated by others.


Actually, this should be a natural part of our modern and civilized society.

ACS is working on this issue with the Global Village project. ACS stands for "Authentic Collaboration Space". Space here means as much as a place or a space where people can practice collaboration, have fun making mistakes learning, and in which each individual is invited to be completely authentic. One wonders if such a thing is even possible to create?

But when it comes to accepting something outside of our own self-created norm, we return to a state that resembles the behavior of a Neanderthal.


For some reason, our societal conditioning makes it almost impossible to deal with new situations without prejudice, or to not immediately stereotype the new colleague.

ACS says yes! And the good thing is, everyone can learn it, as long as you're ready for something new.


As long as you are not afraid to appreciate yourself and your fellow human beings and get to know in a completely new way.


Do you have the courage to be a unique part of Global Village you are cordially invited to the "Authentic Collaboration Space".

The concept and format were impressive. The diversity in perspectives and backgrounds led to a rich and comprehensive learning experience. The program offers a wide range of insights, cultural perspectives, and interdisciplinary approaches that made it unique and intellectually stimulating.

The participation of students from many different academic fields ensures that the course covers a wide range of topics and approaches, making it multidisciplinary in nature. This interdisciplinarity fosters holistic thinking and promotes the synthesis of knowledge from various fields, which is essential in addressing complex real-world challenges. The collaboration among such a large number of students from diverse backgrounds also leads to a wealth of innovative and creative ideas. The course content, shaped by this collective effort, becomes dynamic and cutting-edge, as it draws from the collective wisdom of the participants.

I found the format very exciting and educational and a great change from the dry theory one might expect at university. It was entertaining and made you reflect (on yourself). I especially liked that you could get so many insights into other cultures, countries and religions through the readings. The course made you look beyond your own borders and was an enrichment in everyday life at the university. It was refreshing and a lot of fun!

It was a very instructive, interesting and exciting experience which helped to leave the own comfort zone and get to know myself and others in a different perspective.

I found the concept, format and content of this course to be amazing. I never took such a course in my home university. It was wonderful sharing so many cultural values and at the same time not sharing them, understanding others cultural values and why they are different from mine. The reason why I loved this course is also the possibility the lecturer gave us to express ourself without putting so much pressure on us, we felt always involved in classes without being forced.

I think it was a great experience and the best course I have ever made at university. The themes were chosen wisely and brought on point. I liked the exercises "know thyself" and "seeking clarity" a lot, it was great to learn so much about myself.  At the beginning of the semester I was really scared of this course but I made a big process and I'm happy I took the chance. Getting in contact with so many students and getting comfortable with talking to people I never met before was just fantastic.

Really informative and interesting to see how everything turned out of working with so many students in those years. The content is really interesting and was never boring, and the work of all the students to make it interesting is to be seen. I really liked the course and I would be happy to stay in contact with the students from the course and the professor. For me the course was perfect as it is and nothing needs to be changed.

To break our prejudices, to have close knowledge of other countries, to get to know people better, to accept that what we think we know may be wrong. It has been a life lesson for me in getting to know myself and other people better.
