The project was created because refugee children (as well as children with migrant/minority background) often face difficulties in adapting in the school environment of the host countries and the traditional cognitive models of teaching cannot cover this need. Thus, there is a need to introduce in the school environment, in cooperation with different stakeholders, alternative methods that cultivate the fantasy of the children, that promote emotional aspects of learning, positive interaction between these children and children belonging to the mainstream communities and that promote non-verbal communication and learning. The project aims to transfer two methods on this respect: Montessori Method and Creative Learning.
It was implemented from 31-12-2017 until 28-02-2020 in Greece, Bulgaria, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Turkey. The Coordinator of the project was Action Synergy S.A. and the consortium consisted of Girona University, Karsiyaka National Education Directorate, Center for Creative Training Association, Vovational Training Center of Lesvos, Cooperazione Internazionale Sud Sud, Center of Higher Education in Theater Studies, Waterpark Montessori International, Haute Ecole Galilee. It was a two-year Erasmus+ project granted by the European Commission (Only Erasmus+ funds).
