CULPEER for integration
Institut equalita started in December 2016 a new project in the EU program Erasmus+ under the title “CULPEER for integration - Cultural and peer-learning approaches for successful integration of disadvantaged youth and refugees at school level”
Culture and peer learning approaches become more important as pedagogical methods. The project aims to implement and transfer cultural and peer-learning approaches for successful integration of disadvantaged youth and refugees at school level.
Culture and peer-learning for integration
Cultural approaches and peer-learning are more and more accepted pedagogical methods especially in informal education. An excellent and successful example is the project KinderKulturKarawane - Children's Culture Caravan. Socio-economically disadvantaged young people at of the age 16-25 from Africa, Asia and Latin America present cultural performances - music, dance, theatre, and circus - for European youth, young adults and other audience to deliver insight into their everyday life and their visions for a better future, but also to show chances for social integration by these activities.
Young adults in Europe discover by these presentations, workshops and direct meetings with the young artists - peer-learning - parallels to their own
Learning Place BioFarm
On 1 September 2016, the Institute equalita launched another project for learning on a farm. The goal is to develop an e-learning course and an interactive online portal for „Learning place BioFarm" for teachers, farmers, coordinating agencies, NGO employees and all other stakeholders.
Educational visits to organic farms offer an alternative and innovative space that allows a formal and informal learning that takes place outside the conventional learning environment. A special focus is laid on the integration of disadvantaged young people and refugee children and families. The partnership comprises eight institutions from seven countries.
