Migration matters

This twinspace supports our Erasmus+ project "Migration matters". Inspired by the recent growing influx of refugees and migrants to the E.U., we feel that migration does matter so we are exploring migration matters...

Project Journal

  • The students and members of ERASMUS+ "Migration matters" project from Vilnius Žvėrynas gymnasium on May 19th-20th went on an educational trip "Stories of the exiled". Participants had visited The Open-Air Museum of Lithuania located in Rumšiškės, Kaunas, where they saw the exile and resistance movement exhibition which consists of a pit-house (yurt), a train wagon used to transport deportees, a hideout (bunker) and memorial monuments. The excursion was lead by one of the deportees - Irena Valaitytė. Participants also visited the Exile and resistance museum located in Palanga, where they had an opportunity to meet two of the survivors of the exile, as well as to remember the Lithuanian partisans day.
    The whole trip also introduced students and teachers to foreign cultures while visiting the biggest Japanese garden in Europe where lots of information was provided about how the Japanese culture is adapting in Lithuania.

  • While sightseeing the archeological site of Acropolis, apart from taking photos, we are going to explain why the Parthenon's architecture engages the viewer.
    This leaflet includes some of the info we are going to present you.
    For those who are not participating in the forthcoming meeting in Greece, I guess that you can utilize it when you manage to come on your own. ;)
