Our research shows that teachers, non-teachers, professionals working with Eastern European including Roma have insufficient information about multiculturalism and transculturalism, Eastern European culture and traditions, what hate crime is, what is equality and diversity for Eastern European students and their parents.

Many professionals do not have access to the knowledge of multidisciplinary solutions of problems and information - guidance on critical thinking and interpretation of various social phenomena.

Professionals are searching for modern and interesting resources for young people from this area delivered by professionals from different background as well.

Teenagers need knowledge that will prepare them to develop awareness of multiculturalism in the face of changes occurring in the contemporary world, which will help young people in the development of life skills in a multicultural society, assimilation and overcoming the barriers of prejudice in choosing their educational or professional path especially after the BREXIT and Hate Crime.

European countries need citizens involved in social and political life not only to enable the development of basic democratic values, but also to increase social cohesion in the face of increasing social and cultural diversity.

Looking at the facts the Leader of the project has diagnosed a key problem - the lack of modern tools adapted to the changing situation today in a multicultural Europe - together with Partners they have analysed this issue in the partners’ countries, and defined the lack of a comprehensive solution to this problem. This confirms the diagnosis in the European Council 2016 report for migrants: shows that there is a lack of comprehensive solutions concerning making aware youth about life in multicultural society. A social and civic competences are an important element of European cooperation in the field of education. They are a part of the eight key competences of citizens living in a knowledge-based society, which in 2006 was described by the European Council and the European Parliament.

The main target of the strategic partnership is to develop a universal multilingual tools and materials, which directly contribute to increasing the level of awareness of school children in the area of multiculturalism and national identity.

Schedule for the conference with guest speakers and panel guests will be confirmed by 10th of January. Refreshments will be provided.
