The intercultural meetings are above all a ways of travelling in-depth in the cultures, to meet truly the populations of the visited countries. For this reason, the tools proposed during the workshop of the formation are mediators/facilitators of "meetings".
The formations with the techniques of the "Clown" and/or the "Theatre Forum" are relevant to use within the professional, associative framework as in an objective of personal development. They are opened for all. No need to have any competences, or experience in theatre or clown theatre.

Littoral of bay of Hann: the bay of Hann is located on the Eastern frontage of the peninsula of the Green Cape between the point of Beautiful-Air and the village of Mbao (in North east of Dakar) The traditional fishermen consider that the bay of Hann was one of the most significant nurseries of under area.
Its strategic situation supported the establishment of infrastructures like the port and the production facilities. All the industrial sectors are represented in the bay and it has gathered more than 60% of national industrial fabric. For this reason, the bay of Hann constitutes a site with great stakes. The establishments around bay since 1920 were constructed without supervision and without control of environmental standards. That is why today, it gathers all the problems of environmental pollution of the bays of Dakar: This beautiful bay has become a “trashbay” a place of many industrial effluent discharge., urban used water discharges, rejection of storm-water sewers, beach of bathe, ' beach-port' of fishing, small processing industries, habitats in traditional villages, habitats in villas standing wild discharges, ' official ' discharges, tourism and conflicts of use. Since 1993, the actors in place under the coordination of the Management of the Environment and the listed establishments take actions of rehabilitation of bay.
