There are different ideas on how to work with internationalisation and make it familiar. In many organisations this is an ongoing process and certain steps are taken to get closer to the idea of incorporating international cooperation into everyday work. There are different things an organisation can do to help make internationalisation a more common part of their structure.
Why and how to
Appoint an International Coordinator to help the work with international projects, exchanges, study visits, online meetings etc.
Work with international projects to learn from other countries experiences in different fields and to build networks.
Appoint an International Steering Committee with representatives from different departments in the municipality. The steering committee will discuss and exchange different ideas, projects etc. and make decisions connected to internationalisation.
Always be visual and communicate your results.
