Within MiCREATE project, we had a role to conduct series of workshops for policy makers and seminars for teachers in Italy, Germany and Lithuania, to inform them about MiCREATE policy recommendations and increase teachers’ capacities in inclusive education.

Even if Italy, Germany and Lithuania differ significally in regards to migration history and integration policies, the topic of integration and inclusion of migrant children into education is a hot topic!

Based on developed MiCREATE guide of teachers, we strengthened capacities of teachers in relation to diversity management, multicultural education and a child-centric approach and trained them on different methodologies and tools that can facilitate the integration of migrant students in regards to the following topics:

  • multicultural education and diversity management;
  • preventing inter-ethnic conflicts in the school environment;
  • art-based practices and measures for promoting inclusion;
  • migrants’ conceptualization of well-being;
  • organization of everyday school life.

In addition to that, we let them try two information-communication (IC) tools developed to stimulate language learning, creativity, expression and the participation of all children and to provide innovative ways of addressing cultural dialogue in schools:

It is worth to mention that more than 1000 teachers have participated in our organised seminars in Lithuania! Such a high interest indeed shows the need for more trainings and seminars on integration in that part of Europe!

About the project

MiCREATE – Migrant Children and Communities in a Transforming Europe, funded by Horizon2020 programme of the European Union, aims to stimulate social inclusion of diverse groups of migrant children in EU countries by adopting a child-centred approach to migrant integration at the educational and policy level, also through child-centred research.

The EU-CARES vernissage: urban conflict in analog photography

I would photograph double-parked cars, fancy parking lots, crosswalks, broken pipes, dirt, debris, falling buildings and murals. These images, which emerged from EU-CARES’ “Storytelling through Photography” workshop, depict urban conflict on the way from home to work. The Kamera Lab analog photography workshop displayed the participants’ creations, attracting and engaging passersby.
