MEGA – Collection of myths and stereotypes now available

The compilation with myhts, stereotypes and success stories has been finalised. It is quite huge. We hope that you will be surprised by some of the things you read and that maybe one or two myths will disappear from your minds. We are well aware that not everything is great in the EU – but it is much better than some always postulate and there are some wonderful success stories.

The I-Care partners have completed their situation analysis in terms of identifying intercultural competences needed in the social and health sector, the difficulties faced by social and health workers in dealing with cultural diversity, and the main learning areas related to working in a multicultural environment in the partner countries.

Is this fake or not? School project

Cooperation with the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule Göttingen and the local radio station to raise pupils’ awareness of fake news with the aim of producing a podcast on the subject

Since mid-September, there has been a weekly workshop for interested pupils at the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule on the topic of Fake News. The pupils explore the topic together and develop a podcast for the Stadtradio Göttingen. The afternoon lessons are organised by two members of the No Alternative Facts project team on the basis of the course organised in February. The activities are accompanied by a media educator from Stadtradion, who is then also responsible for the technical implementation later on.
The podcast is expected to go on air early 2021.
