Horizon 2020, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative, is aimed to implement innovation among partners in several domains, among them education. The general goal is to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. By coupling research and innovation, Horizon 2020 is helping to achieve this with its emphasis on excellence, leadership and societal challenges. Our Horizon sponsored program, KIDS4ALL, provides educational, emotional, and social support to kids from immigrant families, while fostering cooperation among culturally, linguistically, and ethnically diverse groups. The model for this project is through a child-mentor who accompanies the child of an immigrant family in educational as well as extra-curricular activities (for the
purpose of social integration) throughout the school year. Leading the project are Doli Levy, Michal Ganz Meishar and Alona Forkosh-Baruch. The project includes the University of Turin (coordinators) as well as Hungary, Sweden, Spain, Germany, Greece, and Turkey.


Project background

Everyone should have the lifelong right to access high quality, inclusive training and opportunities to participate
in, and contribute to everyday education and competence-building. The lifelong learning approach
recognizes that competencies needed by children and adolescents today are not only technical but encompass
learning to learn as a competence in its own right, and other ‘life skills’ which support individuals’ resilience
and participation in wider society. Facilitating migrant children’s inclusion in, educational systems is one of the
most significant societal challenges to reduce the performance discrepancy and to foster social cohesion.

Project contents | objectives

Testing a ‘buddy collaboration’ (guided/intentional pairing of learners) scheme with the lifelong and lifewide
dimension of learning in formal, informal and non-formal educational contexts.
Children involved in the project will work on learning contents related to 8 LLL competences through
theoretical understanding, applied contents and
interactive co-creation activities, where they will develop authorship and agency and enhance their
intercultural, linguistic and socio-emotional skills.


Another example of the college’s involvement in the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo is the KIDS4ALLL project of the international program 20200 HORIZON, which aims to support the educational, emotional, and social integration of children and parents from immigrant families, in response to global migration. The goals of the project are the production of collaborative learning and intercultural dialogue through the learning of key lifelong learning skills, which improve intercultural, linguistic, social, and emotional skills.
