Written by the French team: Léa, Francesca, Anaïs and Adelaide
The morning was devoted to an «Open space workshops», each of us was invited to propose an activity to share his knowledge. We were free to move from one worshop to another.
Ellie (Germany) started with a pedagogical tool: «Visual sierung».
For those who needed some physical activity, they could attend Francesca’s one (France). She facilitated a musical activity around a working song «Pick a bale of cotton»: The choreography, the singing and the coordination between the participants focus on the inclusion.
Finally, Linos, Costas, Christos and Marina (Greece) presented their project «ROUTES: Reshaping Our Universe Through Educational Synergies», which brings together three partners: youngsters from the University of Thessaloniki, from the Second Chance school and young reefugees. The activities include the discovery of each other’s culture, through informal methods and activities related to nature.After a great lunch, trying not to eat too much, and a nice coffee in the sun, trying not to get a sunburn, we went back to work.
We all gathered in the seminar room to hear Anouk (Netherland/Egypt) presents us with a map of the city of Cairo showing us the neighbourhoods populated by migrants. She talks to us about the difficulties of educating children according to their origins.
