The Project

“We are all in one boat – Be a good citizen – Strategies to overcome difficulties of integration into a new society”

In this project we will develop a system of strategies which will make the integration of newcomers into the school system easier. During the integration process the newcomers will explore the surroundings of the school and get to know the structure and rituals of everyday life at this specific school. The students will learn and use means of communication with fellow students and learn to respect intercultural specifics. This way they will develop a sense of community and find a way to be comfortable in their new living environment. At the end of this process the new students should be an accepted and active member of the community.

“We are all in one boat“ shows how students can function as tutors and analyse the newcomers needs and help with their integration and therefore can become valuable members of society and good citizens.
