In the framework of the Anna Lindh Foundation co-funded project “Euro-Med: Education without Borders”, Munkebäcksgymnasiet, member of the Anna Lindh Foundation Swedish network, will host first Creative Meeting in Gothenburg from 8th – 11th December 2016.
The project aims to encourage creative solutions and advance intercultural education among young people of the Euro-Mediterranean region to increase communication and build trust to motivate young people cross borders to take charge of the development of the Euro-Mediterranean region and recognize the benefits of working together across cultural boundaries as we share common goals and a common future.
The content of the Swedish Creative Workshops will be based on the Intercultural Citizenship Education Handbook of ALF and best practices of each partner. Each Creative Workshop (Sweden, Morocco and Jordan) will involve 2-3 people from each of the partner countries. The country in which the workshop is held will take the lead in the content of the creative workshop and provide local context to the discussion of intercultural citizenship education and facilitate the group activities. During the workshops intense work (including group tasks, creative challenges, conversation exercises etc) will be carried out to develop examples, tasks and guidelines to be included in the EUROMED Education Without Borders toolkit and web resource.
Through the three creative meetings the participants will receive new ideas and tools on how to use creativity in addressing societal issues and have participated in developing them further. The methodology will be comprised together into a concrete form as a toolkit and also uploaded o the electronic web-resource that can be used as an education tool by participant organisations, but also schools, youth centers etc.
