Improving young people’s social awareness of the reality of migration and common European values and fostering their active role in society through innovative training workshops is the main objective of MOVE.

After the February training of youth workers in Valencia, the MOVE methodology and the materials it contains were improved and completed and finally used with groups of young people in Italy, Spain, Belgium and Cyprus.

Two workshops were held in Italy, on 24 May and 12 June, in which a total of 21 young people from different cultural backgrounds participated.

During the two days, the young people experimented with some of the activities and games contained in the MOVE methodology – an innovative methodology based on Gamification and Story Telling – and tried out the Oca Game that was adapted for the project purposes, with the aim of stimulating reflection on the two project themes: migration in Europe and common European values.

The young participants learnt new concepts, increased their awareness and acquired new tools, all in order to actively contribute to the development of inclusive societies that promotes diversity, acceptance and common values.

By helping participants reflect on what a migrant person faces on his or her path to inclusion in the new host society, and by increasing their knowledge about common European values, the Oca Game allowed them to increase their knowledge and become multiplier agents with their peers.

The goose game and the gamification and story-telling activities contained in the MOVE training guide are available for downloador online use on the project website.
