Motivation for the project from Stockholm International School

Let’s use digital tools to talk about tolerance
KA2 Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices – School Exchange Partnerships

The motivation why we wanted to participate in the project:
The theme of the project is very important to us. Since we are a truly international school with a built in diversity we have foster our students to be global citizens and we would like to hold workshops in that. We also learned from the previous project that it is in the meeting that people handle situations differently, no matter what the theme is, it is the travelling and meeting that results in friend building and in the long run peace. We also think it is important at our school to make it possible for all students, not only those who can afford a school trip to participate. We also want to continue with Erasmus+ as a window towards Europe since we have students from all around the world and this is a great way of learning.

For the first time in a project are we open up students homes for other students which will be very interesting and a big experience for our students who only speaks English and will have to be hosting other students in Sweden, making them feel Swedish. That was our experience from earlier projects where we had students from Austria, Kenya, South Korea that were referred to as Swedish. It made us realize that we are all humans and the rest is just labels depending on context.
