• Increase skills of school educators on inclusive methodologies and pedagogical approaches, for fostering pupil’s integration and mutual understanding;
• Enhance the capacity of schools in addressing social inclusion in 6 EU countries;
• Increase the consciousness and knowledge of parents and carers of students, on their role on the children behaviour, in the context of tolerance and open-mindedness toward diversity;
• Raise awareness on the problem of social cohesion in multicultural schools and to promote cultural diversity at schools.

Final results:
• Create and validate concrete activities aimed at boosting intercultural communication and tolerance amongst students based on innovative approaches such as restorative practices and social and emotional learning;
• Create and validate online capacity building training for teachers and educators;
• Increase the capacity of the schools to be responsive against the multicultural classrooms and thus boosting the level of social inclusion of students coming from migrant and different socio-economic backgrounds.
