The real hostelling experience isn’t just about booking a bed, it’s about opening minds.

In collaboration with our HI national associations, IOU Respect are offering a group of individuals the opportunity to travel to Paris from July 25th – August 8th this year, to discover unique cultural differences and appreciate undeniable similarities among people from all over the world.

What is IOU respect?

IOU respect is a life-changing journey. For a diverse group of successful applicants from the US, Egypt, France, Germany, Lebanon and Tunisia, this two-week cultural exchange program will provoke thoughts, broaden minds, help develop skills for intercultural communication, and foster attitudes that promote mutual understanding and tolerance.

Explore the hidden treasures of Paris with friends you haven’t met yet; share meals, and thoughts on identity and discrimination; break down cultural barriers and build lasting relationships.
