The Swiss SIETAR Congress was a great success and most enjoyable experience, with great sessions and beautiful locations. During the first day the team of Joe Kearns, Alex Frame, students from University of Burgundy, Heike Stengel and Catherine Roignan delivered workshop in the name of the SIETAR Special Interest Group (SIG) on Migration. It was attended by about 40 participants.
The workshop began with a Cultural Awareness Training for Migrants, a case study of the situation in Dijon, France, which was followed by short presentations by workshop attendees, who described their own initiatives and experiences of working with migrants.
During the workshop Catherine Roignan introduced and facilitated the diversophy® Nouveaux Repères, French migration game, a game to help refugees and French people meet and better understand each other. Europeans of various nationalities North to South actively participated: playing in groups of 4-5 they provided us with valuable feedback.
The Nouveaux Repères game will be presented by Grazia Ghellini and Mohamad Antar in Malaga during the SIETAR Spain Congress in September 2018.
