Challenges for a systemic inclusion in Europe

More than ever, the current situation of forced migration shows us that there are no isolated events. The migratory crisis in the Mediterranean and the drama in Afghanistan are just two examples that show how european schools must be prepared to welcome and include newcomers who come from complex contexts.

The European schools of the 21st century cannot be passive spaces that react to surprise events. European schools must advance in collective intelligence, preventing future scenarios, generating evidence-based innovation, sharing good practices, training their teachers in skills and strategies that favor systemic inclusion.

Inclusion in ECO-IN is based on this concept. In the case of the project in Catalonia, the Trust Centers of the project can constitute an innovative space that generates an inclusive local culture, not only to welcome newcomers, but also to improve the solidarity and prosocial quality of the territory’s social networks .
