MEDIS Kick-off meeting

According to the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR), over 1 million asylum-seekers and migrants reached the European Union via the Mediterranean in 2015 alone; that is, nearly five times as many as in 2014.

Integrating minority, migrant & refugee children at Mediterranean schools is a discussion on the role of education in the overall effort to integrate refugees & immigrants in European societies.

In this context the Mediterranean Inclusive Schools (MEDIS) Program through its lifecycle aims to strengthen and consolidate social cohesion, intercultural education and local language in a multilingual framework of newly arrived migrants at primary and secondary schools. MEDIS will pilot a new program based on past experience and actual societal needs.

In this framework, the MEDIS kick-off meeting took place on the 27th – 28th of February 2018 in Girona where partners discussed the objectives, work plan and deliverables of the project.
