Phase 1. Promote the participation of educators and social agents

From Radio ECCA we believe that teachers have in their hand to be able to transform society from education, but no matter how much enthusiasm, sensitivity, and vocation they have will not be able to achieve the desired transformation without the involvement and recognition of the rest of society for this reason the task of the precise education of participation not only school but also family and social. What we intend to achieve is that educators are future transmitting agents of the causes and consequences of immigration and that sensitize and promote interculturality among schoolchildren of educational centers that in turn multiply their support for diversity. to the educators of the theme of immigration and sensitize them to be the true transmitters and promote interculturality from the classroom. For this we want to carry out the following activity: dissemination of the program, in schools for the collection of educators through of different media: press, radio, institutional web, etc.

Phase 2. Training of educators and agents involved in integration

The objective of this stage is to enable the educators and social agents involved in the integration of the immigrant population, training in intercultural mediation skills with the immigrants collective. Specific objectives: 1. Know the origins , principles and methods of intercultural social mediation. 2. Know the methodology and techniques used in intercultural social mediation, understood as a tool for human relations management. 3. Analyze the types of conflict that may appear in contexts of cultural diversity and how to manage them through mediation. 4. Have tools to begin in the practice of intercultural social mediation and fight against bullying, in the formulation of social intervention projects through intercultural social mediation. CONTENT PROGRAM (45 hours): Diversity and Intercultural Mediation (30 hours) Bullying: The abuse between peers (15 hours) The program presented in this project is an important alternative for professionals since in a relatively short period They may have a specific qualification that will facilitate their mediation functions.

meetings with educators for information on program objectives, participants selection, interested in preparing as transmitting agents with awareness activities. In total it will be 4 h work that will be carried out by experts. Once the first phase is finished, the educators will be responsible for informing and sensitizing their schoolchildren in the classrooms with the same elements that they have used in a practical and interactive way. They will carry out dynamic actions among schoolchildren: 1. Direct intervention with schoolchildren. (6 hours). Educators interactively and through new technologies will involve schoolchildren in practical activities for their awareness and acceptance of immigration as a daily fact of the society in which they live. Its participation in radio programs will be proposed, dealing with issues such as education and integration, social action and immigration. 2. School practices that will be in charge of transmitting the knowledge acquired from the school, organizing “open -door” days to produce the multiplier effect that is intended to be achieved. Drawings, murals, photographic exhibitions, radio etc. programs on “interculturality and acceptance of diversity” from the classrooms will be exhibited.
