The current multicultural and multiethnic context has created for each the need to learn how to relate with mentality, communication methods and languages different from their cultural context of origin and reference. For the growth and peaceful coexistence between the different cultures of contemporary society the promotion of interculture, of meeting and dialogue between different identities and communities and the creation of support and integration networks for migrants are fundamental.
Tehnovation operates in the field of intercultural education to promote a better and effective inclusion of migrant children in schools and in the social context of reference and to facilitate interaction between different cultures and generations through new technologies. In particular, Technovation realizes in the schools of Campania territory activities and laboratories of support and alternative teaching for migrant minors, and recreational-recreational workshops of education to interculture, aimed at stimulating empathic behaviors between groups and individuals of different origins.
The migrants crisis puts Italy and Europe in front of a challenge whose dimensions are comparable to the challenge posed by the ecological crisis of the last quarter of the last century, a crisis that was overcome thanks to a huge research effort, which led to an industrial reconversion and a change in the mentality of citizens.
The discussion on migrants involves stolid and ferocious prejudices, which must be fought and debunked at three hundred and sixty degrees. Migration requires a similar multidisciplinary approach, involving human sciences, social sciences, religious sciences and cultural heritage with medicine, mathematics, physics, chemistry, life sciences, environmental sciences, transport, agri-food and data science; and this is the approach chosen by Technovation researchers, who have already had important results in Italy and in Europe.
In recent years, democracy has had to face attacks by fanatics motivated on a religious basis, or that claim to be such, and has had to deal with economic models that consider it an alleged obstacle on the road to a world economy dominated by internet giants, where all are producers and consumers of goods and services traded globally.
Migration requires careful consideration of its ethical and political implications, especially in matters related to personal identity, gender, cultural and religious diversity.
