“At the shores of the Atlantic Ocean
at the borders with Immensity
where the land comes to its end
and natives call it Costa da Morte – Death Coast
little information about NFE or European Youth programmes has ever been heard…”
Aware of the lack of opportunities and intercultural experiences in the most Western coast of continental Europe, the JAMM-IN team started its job during the Spring 2019. The chosen location was Cee, with 7000 inhabitants, the main town of this geographically deprived area.
Aiming to start a dialogue between Formal and Non Formal Education under the frame of Human Rights, the 3 local Secondary Schools were contacted and 4 educational pathways were planned:
Gender & creativity, Inclusion, Cultural diversity, Active listening.
All educators in the 3 schools undoubtedly and unanimously identified “active listening” as an urgent and dramatic need, prerequisite for any further action.
We listed a set of tools that soon became the seed of the JAMMIN toolbox.
Then the listed tools were tested in 8 sessions with groups of about 20 teenagers aged 14-16
