In the activities participated youth, including youth with migration background.

 

Some opinion of the facilitators about the ITE materials:

 

"The workshop went smoothly. It seems to me that the group enjoyed activities. Participants decided to do some more workshops on similar topics and would like to do some of them (workshops) with migrants." (Agnieszka, Poland)

 

"I find this scenario to be very flexible in terms of innovation and having space to be adopted to different countries and target groups." (Dovile, Lithuania)

 

"Due to its simplicity the syllabus is adequate to all kind of groups from children to adults, multicultural groups, mixed groups, etc. Its easy to implement, facilitate and conduct, and the facilitator can adapt the materials according to their availability." (Mónica, Portugal)

 

International Training in Palermo

 

A transnational training action addressed to educators, teachers and the people committed to promote the inclusion of groups in situations of migration, refuge or asylum seekers was held in Palermo, Italy, between 19 and 23 March 2018. Among others, the training aimed to know and apply in practical and multicultural context the set of educational resources developed under the project.  We also visited organisations working with immigrants to learn their best practices, and we realized, that Migrant Welcoming Center in Palermo supported already more than 10 000 families. Santa Chiara Center organize afternoon activities for around 200 migrant children. Moltivolti was established by 14 friends and promote mutual cooperation between migrants and host society. We came back inspired, impressed and motivated by the field visits and the whole training.
