MigratED, Migrations and human rights enhanced through technology in education, is a Global Citizenship Education Project (GCE) financed by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union.
The MigratED project aims at disseminating good educational practices on intercultural dialogue, migration and human rights, by training teachers, educators and younger generations on these topics and on the use of digital and multimedia tools.
Youth and the educational community are involved in a digital awareness raising campaign for promoting a sharing and welcoming culture in Italy, Portugal, Slovenia, Cyprus and Greece.
In each country, several groups of youngsters involved in the project produced participatory videos, after receiving training on GCE themes, on media and video literacy and with the support of facilitators and video-making experts.
Within the MigratED project, 18 participatory videos were produced: these are the main part of the final MigratED Webdocumentary, published and translated in the languages of the five countries involved within the project. The different stories in each country are collected together, creating one key message: the encounter and sharing among European young people and migrants, refugees, asylum seekers.
"Migration, human rights and intercultural dialogue are becoming increasingly urgent and necessary at school level, by using multimedia tools, in order to construct a nonsuperficial narrative and promote a society free from fear and in which equality and social inclusion are implemented, primarily in the educational field."
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
"War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength."
George Orwell, 1949
