In these workshops young students in secondary schools in Granada incorporate musical instruments from different parts of the world into subjects like Geography and History. This encourage them to participate because it´s fun and they love music. This way they get to know the others knocking down barriers.
Suhail Serghini, coordinator of Andalusia Intercultural Libraries, says this is a good way to improve the knowledge youth have about other people and other cultures that live together in Europe, thereby contributing to create open, diverse and plural societies.
It´s a very positive experience that schools value highly.
SISUMMA aims to foster young Europeans´engagement as active citizens in the defence of a democratic EU in which multicultural coexistence constitutes its major asset. Awareness-raising activities like these intercultural workshops are a great way to do so.
