Dates: 21 November 2016
Venue: Folkbildningsrådet, Stockholm, Sweden
Target audience: Adult education trainers and managerial staff
Description: Around 160 000 people came to seek shelter in Sweden during 2015. As a first step into Sweden they have often been placed in big houses/farms at the countryside and sometimes near the folk high schools. Managers and teachers from these schools were invited to discuss two issues: How can we develop our work with inclusion in our folk high school, with the civil society and with the authorities? How can we contribute to making migration into a resource in the local community? We used resources from the OED project, a Swedish summary of the OED guidelines, a report about how some folk high schools work with migrants and 60 methods from folk high schools from the national project Inkludera mera (Include more).
