Stories of Departure
The students of the Liceul Teoretic “Johannes Honterus” challenge is to know and understand the present movements of people in Europe. By joining an ERASMUS+ project on the role of education in promoting social integration and understanding, the school decided to study aspects of current immigrants and refugees in Romania. A group of students and teachers developed a raising awareness campaign about this European issue with the intention to inform as well as to develop empathy and understanding. “Why do people migrate?” was at the core of the campaign. In collaboration with the local Migrant Integration Center, two Syrian refugees share their experience with the students, who prepared some questions and made a short interview with the two guests.
