Digital Cultural Literacy as a Means for Integrating New European Citizens

 

In the years to come, migration into Europe will continue, and it will remain one of the main political, social and educational issues. Migrants actively contribute to the economic, social and cultural development of European societies. Their successful integration into society in the host country is the key to maximising the opportunities of legal migration and making the most of the contributions that immigration can make to EU development. Education and training are among the most powerful tools for integration and access to them should be ensured as soon as possible.

At the same time, we can observe a growing alienation between the official and highly ethical policy and big parts of the European population. The welcome culture from summer 2015 has made place for growing rejection and populism and xenophobia have increased. Therefore, only a strategy that acknowledges migration as an opportunity and integrates a value-based approach will prevent the internal disillusionment of citizens with the European project.

 

Our project will contribute a constructive approach to migration in Europe. It will develop an innovative model for cultural integration of adult immigrants by bringing them to “re-build” European cultural heritage using digital communication techniques and tools.
