B.Afternoon activity report
During the afternoon activity we had the opportunity to share our mutual stereotypes of all nationalities from the project. We got to find out more about foreign countries’ perspective on our own and learned how to work in a team and put creative ideas on the paper.
The lack of diversity in materials made us limited in a way but also made us come up with more creative ideas and taught us how to work with what we have.

First we met Fernando, a Spanish guy who helps Moroccan people who try to migrate from Morocco to Ceuta or Melilla, which are two Spanish cities located in Africa’s ground. The border between these two cities and Morocco is patrolled by a anti-migration wall, and we had the chance to understand how this wall is made, and how hard and dangerous is to try to pass through it.
Our second guest was Leila, a Moroccan girl who lives in Spain since 2003. She told us her personal experience as an illegal migrant for 8 years, how she struggled in the difficulties, how she met people who harmed her but also people who helped her.
Last day if the project: In the morning had a workshop that was really useful to learn more about Erasmus+ program.
We were divided in small groups, each of one had to explain a different topic to the others (KA1, KA2, KA3, difference between formal, informal and non-formal education, etc).
After that we joined our national teams and we made the “Dissemination” activity: we wrote a short text to sum up what we did during these days, and we posted it on our social medias, including some pictures.
In the afternoon, we had the possibility to be “in the shoes of the organizers”: the last workshop consisted in creating a prototype of a project. Divided in small groups, we had to find a topic, a title, partner countries and activities for the project that we would like to make.
At the end, the evaluation part: every participant expressed his opinion, his impression, his thoughts about the whole project. This can be helpful for the organizers, to make their best for the further projects.
