Seeds for Integration
In order to encourage building bridges between migrant children and their peers in secondary schools, OBESSU decided to launch the project “Seeds for Integration”. The main idea was to provide small, medium and large grants to secondary school student unions, or to independent groups representing school’s students, to support the implementation of creative initiatives along the topic of educational inclusion of migrant and refugee children. As such students provided solutions for students.
Coloured Glasses (Cgrow)
In partnership with European Educational Exchanges – Youth for Understanding (EEE-YFU), Fern Universität in Hagen and seven European national YFU organisations, OBESSU took part in a two-year project (2017 – 2018) called “Coloured Glasses: Expanding Intercultural Education”.
EU CONVINCE project – EU Common Values Inclusive Education
OBESSU was an associate partner of EU CONVINCE project which provides teachers, other education personnel, school leaders, as well as the education institution community as a whole with tools and methods to deliver inclusive quality education to all and better deal with citizenship related issues both in the classroom and in extra-curricular activities. The project was a direct answer to the challenges, but also opportunities, of multiculturalism, diversity and social inclusion.
