KA205 “Game On – Inclusive and Accessible Participation” – Strategic Partnerships for Youth
Project Number: 2020-3-PL01-KA205-094940
In recent years, war and globalization have changed the world – on one hand, people from conflict-torn countries seek safety and opportunity for a good life, while on the other hand, many people consider themselves global citizens and move to live abroad. This presents a Europe-wide problem – young people from different backgrounds might have a learning barrier due to a combination of social, economic, and cultural factors. Now all those pre-existing factors are combined with a new issue – COVID-19. The unique situation contributed to the already hectic lives of youth and is just another hindrance in their efforts to succeed. In our project, we focus on the groups with fewer opportunities, namely, immigrant youth since they have been one of the most affected groups in these times. The objectives of our project are to help young immigrants and people from different cultural backgrounds develop career competencies that are aligned with current business needs via board games. The competencies the project focuses on are mother tongue fluency, foreign language acquisition, mathematical literacy, competence in science and technology, digital competence, learning to learn, interpersonal, intercultural, social, and civic competence, entrepreneurship, and cultural expressions. Moreover, these employability skills are applicable in various sectors of the economy and are needed for immigrants to overcome various barriers, such as language barriers, prejudice, or economic difficulties. Apart from an employability standpoint, these competencies will also prove valuable for those participating in online classes since the digital skills, combined with organizational skills, are of the utmost importance for success in a digital academic environment.
