The project ‘Urban diversities – challenges for social work’ brought students, residents of superdiverse urban neighborhoods, practitioners and lecturers together in order to co-create a fresh understanding of urban complexities and tensions, and to identify, create and refine skills for recognizing and effectively working with urban tensions and polarizations.
It developed and implemented a ‘blended learning course’ that strengthens the capabilities of future social professionals to intervene in situations that involve urban tensions and complexities. The course consists of a community service learning (CSL) trajectory at the local level, combined with virtual transnational exchange.
Five European higher education institutions worked together in Urban diversities as part of an Erasmus KA2 project. More about Erasmus+. Picture on these pages are designed by Erik Claes.
