LISTEN – Learning Intercultural Storytelling

Today is the first day of our new 2-project funded under Erasmus+. The project aims at using the storytelling approach in a radio environment as a means of communication and a way of integrating refugees in the community.
Storytelling has a great potential to attract and motivate people to learn, to connect with others and to express themselves. It offers a common approach to personal development and learning that has the potential to unite the different sectors in a community because of being interactive, immediate and very personal. Through storytelling, refugees will be motivated to express themselves and share their life story with the hosting community. The main target group of LISTEN is the large professional category of training providers. They will be invited to join the project activities and to develop new professional competences and skills or expand the existing ones, in terms of tailored training methodologies for refugees. These new professional competences will be validated through a powerful and well known validation system called LEVEL5 that will be adapted to the specific learning patterns of LISTEN.
