OPENCities – Lesson 2: Why do people migrate?
OPENCities is a collaboration project between the British Council, European Commission, City Governments world-wide, and a growing range of institutional partners. The lesson plans in this series aim to support understanding of the potential for cities to more fully embrace the opportunities presented by international population flows.
This lesson plan explores some of the issues associated with cultural and environmental adjustments and looks at some of ways in which these have impacted on the lives of migrants in different cities and countries. This is a strong underlying theme of the OPENCities project www.opencities.eu
