Theatre of the opressed workshops, which took place on camp of the worlds in 2017. Camp of the worlds offered a three day educational retreat in the nature for families from disadvantaged and refugee backgrounds and wider. It was organized for whole families, so parents and kids could come along. As such it was an unique opportunity also for the parents, since most of the camps are organized for youth/kids only. Global education approach was used, a lot of activities were based on peer2peer approach, theatre approach and implemented in the nature. Camps of the world were a great example of integration, where Slovenian families could meet, learn and exchange with diverse families from all over the world. It also offered families from the asylum home a chance to escape, at least for a little while, the walls of the asylum home and the reality, the long waiting they are facing.
Club of global education teachers enables teachers to meet, to try out different global education methods, to offer support to each other and also inspiration. It was established by Association Humanitas in the beginning of 2018. So far the activities involved several methods enhancing empathy, sustainability, global solidarity, intercultural dialogue and action. Teachers learn how to involve global dimension in their school curricula.
Through more than 40 repetitions of innovative experiential interactive traveling theatre show THROUGH THE REFUGEE's EYES (all across Slovenia) we created a (fraction of) experience of refugees and migrants on their difficult journey, and offer the possibility to put oneself in another’s shoes, thereby teaching empathy and promoting understanding; we created opportunities to feel the hate speech on your own skin, possibilities to question xenophobic reven racist prejudices and stereotypes; we raised awareness of the public of the real fates of the refugees living among us, who have been deported because of the negative applications for asylum or are in the process of waiting; broke many negative prejudices and stereotypes on the causes of migration and promote critical thinking and critical acceptance of information from the media and society; raised awareness of young people and the public about interconnectedness of environmental injustice, climate change and migration as key global issues and about their responsibilities and their active role in tackling common challenges facing humankind.
8 persons with refugee or migrant background were actively involved in the project activities, giving them unique opportunity to co-create the project design, story of the theatre show and expand their own social networks.

A performance and workshop at "Sofronij Vrachanski" school in Plovdiv, which took place on October 7, 2014. The video material has been edited for the use of the "CULPEER for Integration" project for demonstration of cultural and peer learning in action.
A video created in connection with the "CULPEER for Integration" project, demonstrating a cultural and peer learning workshop, implemented by the Brazilian cultural group Treme Terra from Sao Paulo with young people from the Humanitarian high-school in Plovdiv. The workshop took place during October 2013. It had a duration of over 2 astronomical hours and involved the entire cast of Treme Terra plus 20 youths from the humanitarian school, who had previously expressed their will to participate. The symbiosis between Brazilians and Bulgarians was contagious and more than obvious. The bright-eyed Bulgarians, unwilling to part with the Brazilian youths, who managed to share so much of themselves and their culture within such a short time, are a proof about the effectiveness of cultural and peer learning.
