The first project meeting with students was from 12 to 16 February in Santa Margherita Ligueres, Italy. The students had the opportunity to feel themselves like new immigrants. Language was strange and difficult, hard to communicate, the whole environment was not habitual. It was really good experience for students.
The Italian project team had put together a very interesting program. It was very nice performance of a band formed by immigrants close to Naples. In addition to the rhythmic music, band members also talked their story – why and how they got into Italy. We took part in the carnival of the school, visited the Migration Museum in Genoa and Europe’s largest aquarium.
Partners also introduced their homework “How to introduce a new homeland for new immigrants”. All partners also brought with them drawings and posters about discrimination and racism.
The next project meeting is in April in Portugal.
