EMN Slovakia presented its interactive educational tool Destination Europe at the Europe Day 2023 that took place at the Old Market in Bratislava. Pupils, students, their teachers as well as broader public tested their knowledge on migration in Slovakia and in the world and familiarized themselves with the printed version of Destination Europe that was available in the IOM and EMN stand.
Destination Europe is an interactive learning and training tool based on role-play that accommodates 4 to 6 players. Over 90 minutes, they experience migration decision-making as a complex process that involves different actors with sometimes conflicting interests. The tool illustrates real-life impacts policy decisions can have on various categories of migrants and the public in the countries that receive them. The educational tool was developed by the European Migration Network. More information can be found at https://destinationeurope.uni.lu.
