World suitcase project

This social project is an educational approach to global and united citizenship.

Explore one or more countries with suitcases filled with objects, images and educational sheets to discover, feel and understand a culture. The animations allow children to discover these countries using their five senses.

The workshops are adapted according to the age of the audience and their number.

Main goals :

Promote diversity – knowledge of the cultures and living conditions of populations elsewhere in the world. 

Curiosity and respect – Learning to ask questions about the world around them. Developing values ​​(human dignity, global fraternity, justice).

Skills – Acquisition of skills linked to actions. Learning while having fun, crafting or cooking.

In practice (Animations last around 2h30) -we come to you, or you can come to us!
