POMELO – Power of Voice, Melody and Diversity
The main focus of POMELO is to improve the effective integration practices for migrant youth and between migrant and local youths in the EU community, in order to foster a multicultural enhancement path through the implementation of innovative educational methodology, tools and practices able to afford equal voice and the opportunity to grow together within the community.
The project objectives are:
- improve the educational methodology and tools for the target groups (youth and social workers/youth organizations/volunteers/instructors working with local and migrant young people), through specific and detailed materials able to explore the effects of music on social cohesion and language learning, especially through creating lyrics and singing;
- enhance and to spread knowledge on the project core subject of the youth organizations and of theirs staff working with migrant and local youth and dealing with migrant integration, involved in the project and at global level.
In this project, PMF is dissemination leader and technical partner for the development of the Infogame and Competence Map on Music as Social Inclusion enhancer and on Foreign Language Learning through singing (O1). Through this Infogame, partners want to provide social workers and all interested in the subject, with informative materials presented in a form different from typical manuals with theoretical background. The Infogame is interactive and contains the essential results of the research on the effects of singing in group dynamics and on music used in second language learning.
