Warming up

We are people from seven countries working on an objective. Is this a good idea? Wouldn't it be better to have each country work on their own project alone?

Everyone that was interviewed or asked said that working in mixed groups is a great idea.

Today we have visited the spots workshop and the band and they looked great working with their workshopmates, who are from different parts of Europe.

If there were only people from the same country, there would be lots of advantages as they would understand each other much better and they would reach agreements more easily. But there would also be disadvantages, because it would be more difficult to present different points of view, opinions and ideas. And this is much more important than speaking the same language fluently.

If we ask these two workshops, I'm sure they will prefer to continue with the mixed groups rather than work with people from their own country.

We've warmed up and now we have to start the race, but not alone, we have to hold hands with the people we have just met, because this is the only way to get to the finish line successfully.
