The societies we live in are becoming richly multicultural as people move to new countries in search of safety or economic prosperity. In the context of migration, participants will explore how nationality shapes our identity and rights and how to creatively cultivate belonging in our new ‘super-diverse’ societies.
Stimulated by video lectures from expert academics and practitioners produced by Migration Matters, participants exchange ideas and perspectives in a video-conference room and engage in an interactive assignment that brings the online experience to the offline reality. Participants develop transversal skills such as self-esteem, curiosity and cross-cultural communication skills and will be awarded Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange digital Badges highlighting the skills achieved.
‘Newcomers and Nationalism: Exploring the Challenges of Belonging in Diverse Societies’ is part of Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange; a project under the Erasmus+ programme, providing an accessible, ground-breaking way for young people to engage in intercultural learning. Working with Youth Organisations and Universities, the project is open to any young person aged 18-30 residing in Europe and the Southern Mediterranean.
