WEBINAR - Understanding Migration Through Education

  • July 9, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • Online Meeting

Due to the heavy demand to attend our meeting on June 25th on Migration and Education with the Migration Museum Project we are now also running this webinar to involve those who will be unable to attend because of lack of places and also for those who did attend and want to follow up.

The project is working with schools and invites members of GlobalNet21 to discuss with them through a series of conversations what the education priorities of the MMP should be for the second year of its life?  This will be a webinar conversation

For example,

·  What should migration teaching focus on?

·  Which subjects should be focused on?

·  What responsibility does a school have to enact the 'cohesion agenda' and how can this be managed?

·  If audience members were to return to school - but in today's context  - how would they want these themes to be communicated?

·  Does the audience know or have experience of other projects / initiatives on these themes that could work in a school environment?

This is an opportunity for members of our network together with the Migration Museum project to explore our shared cultural history and to discuss the role of schools and education in reflecting this shared history in a positive way.

The museum will be an enquiry into who we are, where we came from and where we are going. Britons at home and abroad have a shared cultural history and an exciting future. The Museum aims to represent the thrilling tales, the emotion and the history that have gone into shaping our national fabric.

They have invited us to join them in this venture and we hope you will take part in this first conversation about our shared past, present and future.

Emily Miller will run the webinar and she is the Education Officer of the Migrant Museum Project will lead the discussion. Emily joined the Migration Museum Project from a background in education and youth development work.. More recently she has been pursuing her interest in young people and conflict resolution by working at Seeds of Peace summer camps, which bring teenagers from the Middle East and South Asia together in America, and taking an MA in Conflict Resolution in the Peace Studies division at Bradford University, where her dissertation focused on young people’s attitudes to diversity in France and the UK. She joins us after eight months’ co-ordinating projects for an international youth network NGO in the Hague.

    I'm interested in organizing diasporae to learn to design sustainable economies within their culture and ecosystem frameworks, and then go back and build it, after crowd-funding. This is potentially much more powerful than sending all they can as remittances.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
