SPEL is a partner of the MEDIS - Mediterranean Inclusive Schools European Project, which lasts for three years and has the following partners: Spain, Cyprus, Greece, Bulgaria, Italy and Portugal.

The main objective of the project is to strengthen and consolidate social cohesion, intercultural education and the local language in a multilingual framework of newly arrived migrants in primary and secondary schools through the Mediterranean Inclusive Schools Program.

The final product of the project is that 90 schools from Mediterranean countries implement inclusive programs to facilitate the integration of children from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

The results of the project will be:
• Adapt the LIC (* Llengua, Imigració i Cohesio social * - Language, Immigration and Social Cohesion) Plan to specific environments based on the needs and study of contexts and complement it with other successful initiatives;
• Increase the school professional skills through training for knowledge in inclusive methodologies and pedagogical approaches;
• Increase social inclusion in at least 90 schools in Spain, Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Portugal, implementing and validating the MEDIS program;
• Influencing policies by establishing contacts, signing agreements and drawing up policy recommendations for decision-makers at all levels;
• Raise awareness of the problem of social inclusion of migrant children in schools and promote cultural diversity and tolerance in school settings.
