Grand opening of CONNEXT

What happens when people from three countries put their minds together to support migrants and refugees? Marvellous plans for game-based learning!

In November 2018 partners from Belgium (Flanders), Finland and Sweden gathered in Helsinki in order to plan, how to benefit internationally from S_U+G Serious Urban Game>® methodology and arrange trainings on it. This city race related methodology has been developed by Belgian [ew32] and it can be applied to various topics, always engaging the so called target group in the planning. One ready made game exists e.g. on the use of money and debts (see a clip).

The partners of CONNEXT for inclusion project are eagerly looking forward to apply the S_U+G® methodology e.g. in preventing early school dropout, in promoting access to the labour market and as a tool in career counselling. Belgian, Finnish and Swedish professionals working with immigrants are invited to join the development process in 2019–2021.
