Let go of your Ego
  • include all perspectives
  • get out of your comfort zone
  • learn from others
Don’t stick to mainstream standards.
  • accept technical difficulties
  • try to find your own way of communicating
  • experiment with TV formats
Don’t only focus on the output, but also on the process of learning.
  • listen to the details
  • take your time explaining
Find a common language (also music, pictures,…).
  • use easy language
  • repeat
  • spend money on interpreters and people who help with communication in general
Accept diversity. Make it visible.
  • let people talk
  • let people do extraordinary things
  • address social groups directly
Create a non-jugdemental, safe place/space.
  • create team spirit
