Newcomers and Nationalism
Exploring the Challenges of Belonging in Europe
This “Newcomers and Nationalism: Exploring the Challenges of Belonging in Europe” interactive open online course invites refugees and non-refugee students from all over Europe and the Southern Mediterranean to learn together in an interactive, online classroom.
Students of this intercultural virtual exchange will explore belonging from the perspectives of newcomers in Europe and those that are moving towards a more nationalistic and anti-European sentiment. Asking: What attracts newcomers to Europe? What makes others want to move away from the European Union?
Stimulated by video lectures from Migration Matters from expert academics and practitioners, students exchange ideas and perspectives in a video-conference room and participate in an interactive assignment that brings the online experience to the offline reality. Students develop transversal skills such as self-esteem, curiosity and cross-cultural communication skills and will be awarded Erasmus+ virtual exchange badges highlighting the skills achieved.
This programme is part of the Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange project which is part of 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.
This course starts October 1 and ends December 7, 2018.
