Pistes-Solidaires is an association that develops its projects and actions according to UNESCO's 4 pillars of education: learn to know, learn to be, learn to do, learn to live together and with the others.
Our goal is to make possible that each young person may benefit from the unique experience of international educational mobility. Education goes hand in hand with openness to the world and an understanding of local / global interdependencies.
Pistes-Solidaires bases its work on non-formal education methods, particularly those based on experiential learning. We create educational situations to develop social skills, to facilitate living together and to learn to be.
Research and innovation are at the heart of this work area.
European cooperation Centre is characterized by the creation of educational, social or socio-cultural resources resulting from projects carried out with European consortia.
The inclusion of non-native EU migrants in European host societies is an increasingly important issue, while nothing seems to promise a lull in the current waves of migration. In 2004, the Council of the European Union agreed on common basic principles for the integration of migrants. Consequently, integration can only work if it is the result of a dynamic mutual process. This process involves a basic knowledge of the language, the history, the functioning of host countries.
Starting from the observation that the staff who receive and help migrants are not always armed in terms of intercultural knowledge and skills, this project seeks to develop an educational model as well as to promote the inclusion of migrants in European local communities by enhancing their skills.
The original approach of the project is based on the opportunity to create meetings, get to know each other and offer useful services to others, provide simple answers to daily small needs. Feeling useful and recognized for one's skills and qualities, more than by one's status.
