The content of this seminar will be an opportunity to exchange good practices, to set up partnerships for the creation of tools in relation to interculturality and European citizenship. The projects that are coordinated by the CCGPE concern vocational schools, which are mostly attended by a socio-economically and culturally disadvantaged public. In the Brussels area, in addition to these two aspects, a large proportion of students come from a migration background. These three aspects combined are often a factor in academic failure, social exclusion and withdrawal, favouring populist and extremist ideas of all kinds. The CCGPE insists on beneficiaries’ cultural and intercultural preparation. We expect students to be open to meeting others and towards European citizenship via a lesson on Europe and an explanation of the “Why” of the Erasmus programme.
