Job Bridge – Results at glance

The Job Bridge project has come to an end. We are glad to announce that we have been able to achieve the aspired result. Here is what we did, in a nutshell:
As part of the Job Bridge project, facilitators of learning initiatives for young people participated in an extensive training course in Göttingen in February 2020, with the view to then carry out the so-called pilot learning projects involving at least 15 volunteers per partner country. The aim was to implement the methodologies developed in the earlier stages of the Job Bridge project and at the end of the pilot phase, the objective was to validate the competences acquired by both the facilitators and volunteers during the training and pilot projects, including utilising the innovative LEVEL5 methodology.

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.

I-CARE – How is the situation …

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.

The 40-page report was visualised in an infographic summarising the main findings. Here you can find the Infographic in  English and German.

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.

MEGA – What the EU does for its citizens

The research phase carried out in the framework of the MEGA project has brought some interesting things to light – on the one hand the partners have found some really incredible myths about the EU, but on the other hand they have also found things that the EU does for its citizens that they were not aware of to this extent.
Before the MEGA report with myths and success stories is published – it will be designed over the summer months – you can see at a glance what the EU is doing for its citizens here.

Myths and stereotypes about the EU

Currently, the partners of the MEGA project are collecting myths and stereotypes about the European Union. The EU is often blamed for things for which it is not even responsible. As European Union constantly faces different manifestations of Europhobia, unmasking EU myths becomes ever more important to keep the EU united. Media – and specifically social media – play a major role as an opinion-maker and the carrier of EU myth information to a broader audience.

SASSI – Impact of the pandemic on learning projects

The planned learning projects – so beautifully planned in Matosinhos – have been massively affected by the current situation. Everything started well. The team of BUPNET and blinc came back full of enthusiasm and started to concretise things. First steps were successfully taken: A coaching guideline based on the SASSI concept was developed, mobility as a means of further training was explored and first plans were made – actually a team training abroad was planned for June, then postponed to September and then cancelled completely for this year … . The plans for Job Shadowing have also been put on hold. Unfortunately, travelling is just not safe these days. But we hope that next year we can catch up on our plans for European mobility!

If you are also interested in planning European mobility, please visit our SASSI Hub, where we have prepared a wealth of information on this topic.
