Comments: The visit to the school was a highly motivating experience that made us rethink about our role as educators in the educational system of our country and consider its strengths and weaknesses. The interview of the immigrant students was an awakening experience that helped us identify with the goals of the project, which is based on the real tragedy of refugees seeking shelter in our countries. As for the tours around Granada and Orgiva, we were pleasantly surprised to find out that Spain has set an example as a model multicultural society where people from different backgrounds are able to coexist in peace and mutual respect.

Comments: The meetings had a good location and contents, but lacked in structure, in technical equipment and sometimes in information.

That meant that the meetings couldn’t be so effective as they should have been.

Comments: the results show that the guests were really pleased with the most part of the program. Not everybody was in the Granada cathedral and in the Alhambra. That’s the reason why just 8 persons answered these two questions. The program was very interesting and sometimes quite interesting. Just few activities got lower scores (the concert and the street market) but no activities were directly boring. A great program!
