  • To raise awareness of key agencies (parents and teachers/schools environment) about discrimination of TCNs on new media (social media and Internet) and make them aware of the crucial role they play to support the child in facing the phenomenon;
  • To deliver to the educational environment of the European Countries an innovative, effective and robust methodology and tools able to fight discrimination to TCNs with an evidence-based and participated approach;
  • To stimulate the change of behaviours in territories and social environment where integration appear to be really challenging involving both migrant and non-migrant parents;
