Unit 2 – Farm visits for a better integration of refugees

In this unit I will:

  1. learn how Bio-Farm visits can support the integration of refugee youth,
  2. receive some practical suggestions for implementing Bio-Farm visits,
  3. get to know best practice examples for implementing Bio-Farm visits.

Introduction into the topic:

Farm guides and teachers who work with refugee groups must have a basic knowledge about the situation and different cultural backgrounds and needs of refugees. The unit gives overviews about definition of status of refugees, pedagogical benefits of Bio-Farm visits and practical hints for preparation and implementation of these activities. Ethnic, cultural and country-specific caused behaviors that might be in conflict with farm visit conditions should be known and considered. Furthermore, the unit presents divers best practice examples of Bio-Farm activities in several countries and the feedback of involved teachers and farmers.
