School of Commoning Practices

This exchange programme gathers different schools organized by volunteers and migrant communities in Athens (Open School for Migrants) and Madrid (School of Rights, Escuela de Español and Situated mediation School) in order to share their knowledge, exchange strategies and reflect on the experience of working together with migrant communities.

In the last decade thousands of people arrived in Europe crossing the Mediterranean as a result of political crises as refugees and asylum seekers, or due to economic migrations related to the consequences of climate change, the neo-colonial extractivism or war conflicts. In response to the insufficient response of the recipient countries, groups of citizens have organized self-managed structures to give access to basic rights such as health, education or culture.
