The POMELO project, which began in January 2019, after the completion of a research phase, have allowed a comparative analysis of music as a tool for learning a foreign language or to enhance social inclusion. POMELO intends to use the power of music and melodies to create spaces in which the local and migrant communities can work together to improve each other, breaking down obstacles such as intolerance and social exclusion.
From 3 to 4 September the project partners from Italy, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece and Poland met in Komotini in the North-East of mainland Greece, to analyze the research carried out in each country and define the next commitments. Among these, the first objective to be achieved will be the creation of an Info-game online, which will allow, through interactive quizzes, to improve users’ skills/knowledge both in linguistic and cultural contexts. In this way exchange processes will be activated among young people of different origins and cultures, in view of a greater integration of vulnerable groups in the countries of reference. In addition, the foundations of two Manuals have been laid, that will serve to transfer skills such as teamwork, team building, empathy, intercultural communication etc., to young people of any background.
The next meeting of the project will be hosted in Italy in March by PRISM, coordinator of the project, and therefore in the delicate role of matching the interests of numerous stakeholders, promoting the values and principles of the European Union. The project is funded by the Erasmus + program, Key Action 2, Strategic Partnership in the youth field.
