Learning/Teaching/Training

activity in Porvoo, Finland

March 7 - 11, 2022

The second meeting with students was suppose to take place in Porvoo, Finland in December 2020. Unfortunately COVID-19 stopped this from happening. We waited, and finally in March 2022, it was possible to conduct the meeting. 
The focus at this mobility was around "Who are we?" - referring to the refugees and migrants in our schools. Students replied a survey on their knowledge on integration. There was one survey for native students and another for migrants/refugees.
Students prepared a presentation on the refugee situation in their countries. 
At the meeting, they debated and worked on culture and traditions. All partners brought some domestic food, and we created a big buffet for lunch on the first day.

Also at this meeting, students and teachers finished to work on questions/tasks for the board game, which is the very final result of the project.
