Gather the ingredients in every county to cook every dish in the game!
Many people from the Middle East and North Africa come to Europe, to live and to work. That is not easy. Also 2nd and 3d generation children have problems with integration. Among these groups there are potential valuable workforces, where European population is getting older and shrinking.
The project Newcomers in the Kitchen (NIK) speaks from Newcomers. To use this potential, integration is important.
Integration includes the entry of young children in the educational system, with many challenges:
- Language and culture of the host country,
- Different educational systems,
- Lack of social contacts with neighbours or other representatives of the new country,
- Growing separation and reducing tolerance.
Contacts can be simply created via culinary activities. Multicultural cooking together with children, parents and teachers creates a better understanding. Modern materials such as an App will help. VET students will present it in primary/secondary schools. VET image will improve and more.
This game was created to support these culinary activities and share some knowledge about the different kinds of foods in European, Middle eastern and North African countries.
