OpportUnity, The Final Film

The SIREE project was created to make a palpable difference to the lives of newcomers who arrived in the 2 Seas region to begin a new chapter in unfamiliar surroundings. Find out about the project through this video.

02

We Photo Exhibition

We Photo Exhibition captures the emotions and routines of some SIREE’s community members from different corners of the Project's network. Regardless of where they came from or what language they spoke, the exchanges with people with a migration background revealed a common desire to belong and live in a safe place which they could genuinely call home.

SIREE ebook

The SIREE project was created to make a palpable difference to the lives of newcomers who arrived in the 2 Seas region to begin a new chapter in unfamiliar surroundings. This ebook combines the solid efforts of partners across the region – in the UK, France, Belgium and
the Netherlands – to lay out large breadcrumbs of practical tips and helpful shortcuts to aid education, government and business agencies to help new migrants in constructive ways. Click the link in the photo to read our ebook!

Learning Community Demonstration Guide

This is a practical guide containing the key elements of a co-creative learning community with non-native young people and adults in a school context. Some

inspiring practices and testimonies are also included. With this, we hope to encourage others to set up their own learning communities in or around schools

to adapt the learning environment even more to the needs and requirements of non-native people. Click the link in the photo to read our dissemination guide! It is also available in Dutch.
