The consortium is made up of a group of institutions with extensive experience in the field of European projects and Education
The partners from Cumbria (United Kingdom), Volos (Greece) and the Virgen de los Remedios Association (Spain) have been selected for their experience in previous work in the field of Coexistence. The Etwinning platform has also been used to find new partners who are very concerned about coexistence, such as the Austrian partner, expert in Social Inclusion.
This consortium is strengthened by the entry of the AIS Association (Austria), with wide experience in social inclusion, since inclusion and the empowerment of coexistence is the only guarantor of interculturality and of the direct fight against any form of intolerance. In any consortium, it is good to have one partner, in this case Villamayor Town Council, with no European experience, but with wide experience in project management, having achieved in two years two great domestic milestones: designated as a «City of Science» and as a » Child‐friendly city ”committed to the rights of children, adolescents and the inhabitants in general.
