FuSION is born through the collaboration of six organizations from four different continents who believe in the importance of the value and the fusion of cultures and the education of young people on (inter)cultural heritage for social inclusion.
We believe in the importance of sharing best practices between different and far communities, but mostly on the power of young people and their priceless role in maintaining their (inter)cultural heritage alive.
What is (Inter)Cultural Heritage Education?
Archeological, cultural, historical, natual sites, food, beliefs, traditions, language, music, dances, traditional games, grandparents tales. They all make up our cultural heritage no matter where we come from.
FuSION seeks its inspiration in these concepts and believes in the importance of sharing knowledge, experience and good practices among young people.
What is our method?
We believe education should be fun. And for that, FuSION has chosen to implement gamification activities. They are activities which take the elements of gaming in education activities using non-formal methods.
“Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration.” (UNESCO)
Who involves FuSION?
We work to enrich young people, youth organization, informal groups and youth workers with knowledge and practice on new innovative methods on (inter)cultural heritage education.
Meanwhile, 9 young people from Italy, France, Spain, Ecuador, India and Kenya will be part of a 10-month volunteering experience in different local communities to test the tools, share good practices and become part of there realities.
What’s our goal?
FuSION focuses on the development of new educational approaches based on non-formal gamification methods offering creative ways to support young people and local communities to promote youth active participation and social inclusion in society related to the valorization of (inter)cultural heritage.
Using the local cultural heritage as a start point, we aim at promoting intercultural understanding, cooperation and social cohesion of disadvantaged young people and local youth organizations in four different continents.
Our Game Plan aims at merging cultures, heritages but also experiences through a set of gamification activities with Youth groups and volunteering mobilities with Young people.
