Pick your size – migration tailored to you is ASCS’s workshop on human mobility designed for middle and high schools and youth groups.
It is titled “Pick your size,” or choose your size: knowledge of the migration phenomenon in fact starts from one’s own experience of migration and what one experiences in encountering the other. The path wants, therefore, to put the boy at the center in order to build with him and with the group a path that leads: to the richness of the encounter with other diversities; to deepen the themes of human mobility; to the civic responsibility of each person, within the community and the territory to which he belongs.
The goal is, therefore, to activate processes of cultural change with children, starting from their own knowledge and experience of the migration phenomenon, to be active citizens and create a more welcoming and inclusive society.
“Pick your size” proposes 3 areas for workshop paths:
– Diversity as richness
– Freedom of movement
– Active citizenship
Starting from the area chosen by the teachers/educators of the group, the workshop can be designed by choosing a “size” to fit the needs of the group in terms of number of meetings, number of hours per meeting and level of depth. A size S will provide, for example, one three-hour meeting, M four one-hour meetings per week or one four-hour meeting, and so on.
