The project ”Challenges of Globalization for National Identity and European Integration” focuses on influencing the social skills of participating students. By seeing things, discussing or arguing and learning different points of view will help us all to understand and to respect each others opinions and choises.
The social and political situation In Europe is challenged. The polarization of political views has lead to the rise of populist movements and political parties. Refugees are still an unsolved item. Social inclusion leads people with lack of self-confidense or identity as easy targets of radicalization.
