Front Line is an Eramsus+ Adult Education Staff Moiblity promoted by Itaka Training.

This project is a follow up to another KA1 mobility project financed by the Erasmus+ programme in 2017:

The new project is promoted by Itaka Training together with a national consortium of 7 partner organisations including NGOs, schools and training centres. The training will be organised in 3 countries: Spain, Greece and the UK.

The members of the consortium will select 30 participants who will have the chance to take part in a 5-day training in one of the selected countries. Mobilities will take please starting from March 2020 up to May 2021.

The project will allow participants to acquire a more articulated knowledge of the factors that influence non-European migrants and the most vulnerable groups in the integration process within the European Union. Through workshops, conferences, discussions, networking and the sharing of ideas, the participants will come into contact with and deepen methods and strategies to face the migration crisis, of refugees and economic migrants, applied and experimented in the aforementioned countries.

Description of activities:

– Introduction to the issue of forced migration with a particular focus on international human rights,

– Protection of minors and migrant rights.

– Visit and training to an NGO active in assisting young refugees;

– Deepening on psychosocial aspects of migration

– Possible answers to dilemmas concerning their integration through the use of culture and interreligious dialogue.

New ideas will be established and identified to promote common European values, intercultural dialogue to combat the social exclusion of refugee and asylum seeker communities. Trainers, teachers, educators, tutors and social workers will acquire new useful tools in their work context; the participants will in fact be equipped with the right intercultural and communicative awareness skills necessary to relate to people from a different linguistic and cultural background.

Finally, the participants will acquire greater awareness and knowledge of the major changes present in contemporary European society (with a focus on the countries participating in the project) and the development of multicultural communities in Europe; they will therefore be able to deal positively with the issue of the phenomenon of migratory flows to Europe nowadays from an analytical and communicative point of view.
