Project´s resummee of Lina Petterson-Larsson

Describe the most impressive experience during the exchange relating to our topic "migration".

The most impressive experience during the exchange to our topic "migration" has been the visit of the refugee center in Helsinki (Finnland). It was cool to see how the natives and the refugees worked together and especially how the refugees who have been in Europe for a longer time helped the ones who just arrived or needed help for example by starting a buisness.

Before our trip to Helsinki we visited an accommondation for refugees under 18. It was in the middle of nowhere and looked quiet sad. The place itself was okay and the empoyees of this place have been very friendly and the kids seemed happy. But I guess that itis not a good solution to keep the refugees in the countryside with no neighbours. There is no chance of immigration and exchange.

I suggest to offer refugees a place more close to a city, where they have access to offices, shops and contact to people and socciety like they did it in Helsinki.

What value does the participation in this project have for you?

Firstly I valued the time to learn, to talk and to experience more about the topic "immigration" together with other people not only from Germany, but also from Poland and Finnland. And this brings me to my second point I valued the time and the exchange with the people from Finnland and Poland. I made friendships which lasted longer than the actual exchange and I am happy to stay in contact and hoppefully meet some people again one day:)

How do you judge your own tolerance and openness when it comes to inclusion of immigrants at school and society? Did the participation in this project change anything about it?

I see no point in it to treat immigrants differently than natives. Except the one that we should offer them help by learning our language and culture, but more as an exchange.

The refugee crisis shows how instable our system is and it is not a one-sided learning progress. Both sides have to learn how to solve upcomming problems and how to live in a multicultured world, where we accept and value each other.

My tolerance and openess did not change during the exchange. But I am happy and greatful for the opportunite given to me to learn more about the topic and to actually EXCHANGE with others. Because I think that meeting and talking with people from all over the world expand our understanding and this is the key to tolerance and opennes and to a more peaceful world.

Expectations, wishes etc. :
Hello, I am Fin Tiedemann, currently 16 years old, living in Lübeck and I am part of the Erasmus+ project with the topic MIGRATION.
